Police charge 85-year old Ontario man for street racing.

An 85 year old man was charged for street racing when he was stopped on highway 407 going 161 km/h. That is 61 km over the legal speed limit of 100 km/h.

"Under new provincial legislation, billed last year by OPP Commissioner Julian Fantino as a "shock and awe" campaign, drivers who exceed the speed limit by 50 km/h or more stand to lose both vehicle and licence for one week, along with a fine of at least $2,000."

"During the initial blitz, police caught a 23-year-old motorcyclist from Ajax, Ont., speeding at 210 km/h, and a driver near Cornwall, Ont., who was travelling at 230 km/h."

Wow that is fast! Now can you imagine if this guy crashed? He would be killed and so would others!

No one is saying don't speed....But c'mon...we live in Ontario, Canada and not Germany. Our highways are NOT the autobahn....if you speed like a maniac on these highways not only do you risk your life, but the lives of innocent other people who were driving to work or wherever, only to have a moron driving at 230 km/h crash into them!

Our highways are NOT a RaceTrack!
