4:30 PM | A Welling­ton County OPP of­fi­cer was mon­i­tor­ing traffic on County 21 just west of County 7 in the Town­ship of Cen­tre Welling­ton when he ob­served a male driv­ing a black Dodge trav­el­ling at a speed that ap­peared to be well above the posted speed limit. The ve­hi­cle was locked on radar at 152 km/h in an 80 km/h zone. The driver of the Dodge con­tin­ued on County 21 and failed to ne­go­ti­ate a turn onto County 7. He struck a light stan­dard, caus­ing sig­nif­i­cant dam­age to his ve­hi­cle. As a re­sult, a 20-year-old Elora man has been charged with ‘race a mo­tor ve­hi­cle,’ ‘op­er­ate a mo­tor ve­hi­cle with­out in­sur­ance’ and ‘care­less driv­ing.’ He will ap­pear in Guelph Pro­vin­cial Court on De­cem­ber 20. His driver’s li­cence and ve­hi­cle were seized for a pe­riod of seven days as per statute.
