Last weekend, our police officers were busy with a number of heavy-footed motorists. Yes, the weather was warm and sunny, but that’s no reason to drive recklessly.
On Saturday, around 11:15 a.m., a 32-year-old Pontiac driver was caught driving at 101 km/h in a 50 km/h zone on chemin de la Montagne in the Lusksville sector = $822 and 10 points + license suspended for 7 days.
Also on Saturday, between 5:40 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., several racing enthusiasts on their way to the Luskville Dragway were caught driving at 106-115 and 123 km/h in a 70 zone. All Ontario residents
During the same period, a citizen contacted the police service to mention that a few minutes earlier, he had observed three vehicles that appeared to be racing on Boulevard des Allumètières in the Aylmer sector and then on Highway 148. Having a good description of the vehicles, and assuming that they might be on their way to Luskville, the police officer who was already in the area only had to wait a few minutes before seeing the three vehicles arrive. They were pulled over and identified for investigation, and fines are possible. The drivers were between 19-28 and 52 years of age, all from Ottawa.
As for Sunday, well, our police officers were not to be outdone, as several speeding fines were issued on Route 105 in La Pêche, resulting in a fine of $1,330 and 14 points for a 26-year-old Ottawa driver for driving at 157 km/h. His driver’s license was also suspended for seven days.
