Speeders on Highway 50; police catch same driver speeding 18 minutes later

Québec police are still apprehending speeding drivers.

On December 23, Sûreté du Québec police officers intercepted a vehicle travelling at 170 kilometres per hour in a 100-kilometre-per-hour zone at about kilometre-254 on Highway 50 in Grenville-sur-la-Rouge. A 26-year-old Brownsburg-Chatham man received a $1,691 fine and 14 demerit points on his driver’s license. In addition, his car was not equipped with the proper tires for winter driving. His driver’s license was suspended for seven days.

In an incident the very next day (December 24, 2019), police intercepted a vehicle travelling at 145 kilometres per hour at 1:10 a.m. in a 100-kilometre-per-hour zone at kilometre-239.5 on Highway 50 in Grenville-sur-la-Rouge. A 26-year-old Laval man was fined $353 and received five demerit points on his driver’s license. But a few minutes later, at 1:28 a.m., police officers caught the same driver doing 135 kilometres per hour in a 100-kilometre-per-hour zone at kilometre-254 on Highway 50, in Brownsburg-Chatham. This resulted in a second fine of $258 and the driver received another three demerit points on his driver’s license.
