Police in Sault Ste. Marie have charged a 26-year-old with stunt driving following an incident Tuesday morning.

While patrolling Black Road, officers spotted a vehicle travelling at a high rate of speed.

“The vehicle was locked on radar driving 108 km/h in a 60 km/h zone,” police said in a news release.

“Officers conducted a traffic stop and the driver was charged with stunt driving.”

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

The driver is scheduled to appear in provincial offences court.

Penalties may include a fine between $2,000 and $10,000, a driver’s licence suspension up to three years and jail sentence not exceeding six months.

“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,” police said.

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