Windsor police say a speeder was busted going 96 kilometres over the speed limit on E.C. Row Expressway.
On Monday around 5:45 p.m., an officer from the Traffic Enforcement Unit was monitoring the speed of vehicles travelling west on E.C. Row.
Police say a 2013 white Audi appeared to be travelling significantly faster than the posted 100 km/hr speed limit.
With the use of a speed detection device, the officer confirmed the vehicle was travelling 196 km/hr.
As a result, a 24-year-old man from Windsor is charged with performing a stunt on a highway - speeding.
In addition to the charge, the vehicle is impounded for seven days and his driver's licence was seized.
Any person driving in excess of 50 km/h over a posted limit is considered to be stunt driving under the provisions of the Highway Traffic Act and could face serious sanctions including an immediate seven-day licence suspension and a seven-day vehicle impoundment at the roadside.
If convicted, fines range from $2,000 to $10,000.
Courts can impose a driver licence suspension of up to 10 years for a second conviction within 10 years.
