Speeding Honda Civic busted doing 187 km/h on Toronto's Gardiner Expressway

Posted Jan 3rd 2013 2:15PM


In the latest episode of crime doesn't pay, Toronto police busted a 22-year-old driving his 2008 Honda Civic in excess of 187 km/h along the Gardiner Expressway. The man's license was immediately suspended for seven days and his Civic impounded under Ontario's strict and often controversial stunt driving laws.

The speeding driver, (who's name hasn't been released) now faces serious stunt driving charges which the law defines as driving at 50 km/h or more over the speed limit. The 90 km/h speed limit on the Gardiner Expressway means the man was caught speeding at more than double the posted limit.

Although he may be the first high-speed catch of 2013, it looks like police may be on pace to match the 381 suspensions for speeding and stunt driving issued in 2012.
