Speeder hit 155 before being caught


A Langley man’s late night drive through a rural Ontario town has landed him in a local courthouse after he allegedly drove 95 km/h above the speed limit.

At about 3:30 a.m. on Tuesday, July 22, an officer with the Ontario Provincial Police in Perth County saw a car heading down Perth Road 119 at a high rate of speed.

The car was clocked at 155 km/h through the village of Brunner, according to Const. Kees Wijnands. The speed limit in the area is 60 km/h

The car was pulled over and the 20-year-old driver from Langley was charged with racing a motor vehicle.

He is scheduled to appear in court in Stratford, Ont., on Aug. 26.

He won’t be driving back to B.C. on his own right away, as he also had his driver’s license suspended for seven days and his rental car was impounded.
