Someone was going a little too fast in Scarborough on Monday morning.

A driver was caught driving 203 km per hour in a 60 km per hour zone, according to Toronto Police.

Police were on patrol in the Victoria Park and McNicoll Avenue area when an officer observed a speeding 2015 Acura around just after 2 am.

The 24-year-old male driver has been charged with stunt driving, speeding in a 60 km per hour zone, and “race motor vehicle.”

His licence has been suspended for seven days for stunt driving, and his vehicle has been impounded for seven days.

The driver is scheduled to appear in court on March 29.

On September 30, 2007, Bill 203 came into effect, according to Toronto Police. This important piece of legislation addresses the issues of speed/stunt driving on Ontario roads, to ensure the safety of all road users, and remove those who put innocent people at risk with bad driving behaviour.

Drive safe out there, Toronto!
