OPP stops a real winner

This one had me staring at the computer screen like this: :shock:

This morning, just after midnight, Odot spotted a car blasting down the 401 at high speed near Chatham. The officer stopped the 25-year-old driver in a 1992 Honda Accord who was going 167 km/h.

The driver was charged with:
- Stunt driving, marked departure from the lawful rate of speed;
- Speeding 167 km/h in a 100 km/ zone;
- Failure to surrender valid insurance card; :roll:
- Failure to surrender valid permit; :shock:
- Failure to lower headlamp beams. :x

Now here's the part that I hope you're sitting down for. He had a reason for leaving his high beams on and blinding oncoming motorists. :shock: The driver said that his windshield was dirty, so to compensate for the obscured view, he turned on his high beams, at 167 km/h, at night, on an unlit highway nicknamed "Carnage Alley." Obviously, this guy never played connect the dots as a kid; most people with a dirty windshield would have used their windshield washer fluid and wipers, or stopped and cleaned the windshield. I do not know how the officer managed to deal with the guy without laughing until he cried.

Here's the story from the Windsor Star:
