A brand new Quebec driver — and three passengers — needed to take a expensive cab dwelling Wednesday after their Lexus was clocked at 169 km/h on Freeway 401 in South Stormont Township.

The stunt driving cost meant the driving force’s Quebec probationary licence was suspended and automotive impounded, each for per week.

Stunt driving — which incorporates dashing at 50 km/h or extra over the authorized restrict — carries fines starting from $2,000 to $10,000 upon conviction.

Add to that “an costly cab trip to Montreal,” the Ontario Provincial Police stated.

“Please decelerate. Lives depend upon it.”

South Stormont, southeast of Ottawa, is a couple of 90-minute drive to Montreal.
