Schomberg Man Charged For Going 137 km/h In An 80 km/h Zone

A Schomberg man is facing stunt driving charges after police clocked him driving 57 km/h over the posted speed limit in Mapleton Tuesday.

Just before 4 p.m. on October 10, 2017, a Wellington County OPP officer monitoring traffic on County Road 12 saw the man driving at a speed that appeared to be well above the 80 km/h speed limit. Radar confirmed what the officer observed, as the car was recorded at 137 km/h.

As a result, the 39-year-old male driver has been charged with Race a Motor Vehicle and will appear in court in Guelph on December 6, 2017. His driver’s licence and vehicle were seized for seven days as per statute.
