On April 5, officers with Sault police charged a 23-year-old resident with stunt driving under the Highway Traffic Act.

While patrolling Black Road, police radar detected a vehicle driving 108 km/h in a 50 km/h zone.

“Officers conducted a traffic stop and the driver was charged with stunt driving,” Sault police said in a news release Monday.

The driver is facing an automatic 30-day Ontario Driver’s Licence suspension and had their vehicle towed at their own expense, which will be impounded for 14 days.

The driver is also scheduled to appear in Provincial Offences Court.

“Court-imposed penalties may include a monetary fine between $2,000 and $10,000, a mandatory driver’s licence suspension of one to three years and/or a custodial jail sentence not exceeding six months,” police said.

If found guilty, the driver will also face increased costs for high-risk insurance, six demerit points and must attend a mandatory driver improvement course or their licence will be cancelled.

“Driving is a privilege and violating the law can result in you losing that privilege,” police said.

“Sault police hope this incident will raise awareness of the potential dangers and personal and financial consequences of stunt driving.”
