OPP officials in northern Ontario have said stunt driving in the region is rising after a pandemic pause.

The photo accompanying the social media post indicates the driver was travelling 163km/h in a 90km/h zone.

The driver received a 30-day driver’s licence suspension and the vehicle was impounded for 14 days per provincial regulations.

“Slow down and arrive alive,” said police.
