A driver is facing a hefty penalty after being caught Monday going almost twice the posted speed limit on Black Road.

Sault Ste. Marie Police say radar registered the vehicle’s speed at 114 km/h in a 60 km/h zone.

Officers charged a 52-year-old with stunt driving, which comes with an automatic 30 day driver’s licence suspension. The vehicle was also towed away and will be impounded for 14 days.

“Court-imposed penalties may include a monetary fine between $2,000 and $10,000, a mandatory driver’s licence suspension of 1-3 years, and/or a custodial jail sentence not exceeding 6 months,” Sault Police said in a news release.

“If found guilty, the driver will also face increased costs for high-risk insurance, six (6) demerit points, and must attend a mandatory driver improvement course or their licence will be cancelled.”

Sault Police do not release the names of people charged under the Highway Traffic Act.
