Charges have been laid after a Michigan man was clocked going more than twice the posted speed limit on the 401 through Chatham-Kent. Provincial Police spotted the a vehicle heading west near Kent Bridge Road at 209 kilometres an hour. When questioned, the driver told police he was speeding because his young daughter in the back seat was sick, however he declined an offer to call an ambulance. 29 year old Randy Wadie of Sterling Heights has been charged with performing a stunt while driving a motor vehicle, failing to surrender insurance, and failing to ensure a toddler passenger is secured.
When you do something that stupid you deserve to be clobbered. I hope he liked the cab fare back to the Detroit area. I also wonder what his reaction was when he was told he was going to lose his car for the next seven days.
He'll get an additional $200 fee from Michigan for driving without proof of insurance, and $600 for the demerit points and stunt driving. That's in addition to what he'll pay here. Also, under Michigan's "penalty points" system, it looks like he just racked up enough points that they will cancel his licence and force him to take another driving test.
On Sunday, Halton Regional Police clocked a GMC pickup truck going 168 km/h in a 60 km/h zone in Burlington. (Think it was Appleby Line.) He was a G2 driver and was also charged with stunt driving.
And the best part, hes from Michigan, so his licensing bureau there will be notified of this.
