Heavy fine for ‘heavy’ foot

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Dur­ing the night of Jan­uary 28th, at about 1:30 am, a ve­hi­cle was in­ter­cepted af­ter be­ing cap­tured on photo-radar trav­el­ling on au­toroute 10, at the 111 kilo­me­tre mark near Austin, go­ing 203 kilo­me­tres an hour, 103 kilo­me­tres over the speed limit in that area.

The driver was a man from Sher­brooke, aged 22. He re­ceived a fine of $1,552, re­ceived 24 de­merit points, and his li­cense was im­me­di­ately sus­pended for seven days.

De­merit points are dou­bled when a driver goes ex­tremely fast, how­ever, over and above the le­gal con­se­quences, this kind of speed­ing can lead to much more dis­as­trous con­se­quences, usu­ally ir­re­versible.
