Burlington Police Nab Audi Driver Nearly Triple Limit

Driver clocked in Burlington doing 172 in a 60 zone

  • 172 km/h in a 60 zone means no car for a week

  • Stunt driving charge, big fines for driver


Halton Regional Police have added an Audi A4 to their collection for a week after the driver was clocked driving nearly three times the limit early on Tuesday morning this week.

The driver was travelling eastbound on Upper Middle Road, in Burlington, ON, a 60 km/h four-lane road that edges on a dense residential area where the driver was clocked. The Audi was being piloted by a 23-year old driver, Halton Regional Police Service said on Twitter (via The Spectator), and was travelling a 172 km/h.

That means stunting charges for the driver, and it also means that the car is impounded, where it will sit for seven days. The driver’s license will be suspended for the same amount of time, and heavy fines come with the conviction.

It’s not the only massive speeder HRPS Burlington police have nabbed this week. They also reported catching another driver doing 139 km/h in yet another 60 km/h zone. While police provided fewer details, that driver would face similar penalties including the license suspension and vehicle impoundment.

Triple-digit speeds are dangerous enough on the highway, but on city surface streets can quickly turn to tragedy. Race tracks are reopening, keep the speeds where they belong.
