Driver, 80, nailed for stunt driving



It appears speeding is not isolated to young drivers.

According to the OPP, of the three people arrested over the past week for stunt driving along Highway 401 through Chatham-Kent, one was an octogenarian.

On Dec. 9, an officer clocked a westbound vehicle doing 168 km/h in a posted 100-km/h zone.

The Kitchener driver, aged 80, faces stunt-driving charges.

They are not alone, however. Four days earlier, police pulled a vehicle over after it lit up the radar gun to the tune of 175 km/h on the 401.

In that instance, a 29-year-old Windsor driver was charged.

On Dec. 11, another westbound vehicle and another stunt driving charge. This time, it was for 168 km/h, and the 28-year-old driver hailed from Maple, Ont.
