A 22-year-old Windsor man had his drivers licence suspended after police say he was caught going 190 kilometres per hour on Highway 401 in Chatham-Kent.
A Chatham-Kent OPP officer was conducting radar enforcement on the 401 near Harwich Road on Monday around 4:45 p.m.
As a result, the male driver, Ritu Ge, from Windsor, has been charged with racing a motor vehicle – excessive speed, contrary to the Highway Traffic Act.
According to OPP, a Chatham-Kent OPP officer was doing radar enforcement on the 401 near Harwich Road when a vehicle was observed going west at a rate that exceeded the 100 km/h speed limit. “The radar registered a speed in excess of 190 km/hr,” an OPP news release issued Wednesday says.
The drivers licence has been suspended and the vehicle impounded for a period of seven days, as per statute.
