A young driver in Dollard is paying a serious price after a speeding incident that took place on Friday, April 27, 2018.
According to the SPVM, an 18-year-old male was caught by police officers driving over 65 km/h over the speed limit. The incident occurred at Boulevard des Sources in Dollard.
The young man, who had a probationary license, was clocked going at least 116 km/h in a 50 km/h zone.
The reason why? He was late for an interview.
Consequences for the driver included a hefty fine of $1,298, 14 demerit points, and a towed vehicle.
According to Transport Quebec, since the number of demerit points accumulated was more than the applicable threshold (four points for a probationary driver), it’s to be expected that his license will be revoked for a period of 12 months.
The demerit points will remain on his driving record for the next two years, along with an increase in both insurance and cost of renewing a license.
SPVM share that he was still late for his interview.
