And on Thursday evening, OPP caught another driver going 254km/h on Highway 403 in Mississauga.
Police say the 19-year-old male from Oakville was “out for an evening drive” and his license was suspended.
The OPP say that recently, there have been over 450 “Street Racing” charges in the GTA this year.
