A 35-year-old Brampton man has been charged with impaired driving and stunt driving after being nabbed travelling over 180 km/hr on a Toronto highway while intoxicated.
The driver also had two young children in his vehicle at the time, police say.
Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Kerry Schmidt says the driver was tracked driving at nearly double the speed limit on Highway 410.
According to Schmidt, the driver of the vehicle had more than three times the legal limit of alcohol in his system when he was pulled over.
There were also two children, aged seven and four, in the vehicle at the time.
The Children’s Aid Society was notified about the incident as well, Schmidt said.
