Another out-of-town speed demon


Remember yesterday’s post about the speeder on Highway 401, who lived hours to the east?

Well, maybe this seems like Groundhog Day, but last night, shortly before 8:30 p.m., Chatham-Kent OPP pulled over another speeder from out of our area.

But this person was going even faster than yesterday’s 160 km/h driver.

Police say last night’s speeder topped 170 km/h near the Communication Road exit. That’s more than 106 mph.

A 23-year-old Oakville resident is charged with racing a motor vehicle, and will be back in the area in July to answer for the charges.

The vehicle? It is impounded for seven days.
