Ontario Provincial Police have charged a 20-year-old man for driving 228 km/h on Highway 403 in Mississauga.
The driver will have his license suspended for one week as a result of the incident.
His car, an Audi S4, will also be impounded for a week.
“That kind of driving is absolutely ridiculous,” said Sgt. Kerry Schmidt. “There’s no reason for that at all.”
“You’re not on a racetrack, you don’t have race marshals, you don’t have support around you,” he warned would-be speeders.
“You’re on your own. That’s going to turn into a wreck and that’s going to turn into a fatality.”
The driver, who is from Mississauga, will be charged with stunt driving and faces a penalty of up to $10,000.
If he’s charged with a similar speeding incident in the future, his license will be suspended for 30 days, police said.
