Hefty fine for speeding in Ormstown

Officers from the Sûreté du Québec’s MRC du Haut-Saint-Laurent station clocked a motorist speeding 60 kilometres per hour above the speed limit on Route 138 in Ormstown on July 7.

At approximately 1 p.m., officers pulled over the driver, who was caught driving at 153 km/h in a 90 km/h zone. The offender was fined $1,238 and received 14 demerit points. His driver’s licence was also suspended for a period of seven days.

According to the Sûreté du Québec, speed is one of the primary causes of fatal collisions on Quebec roads, where the risk of being involved in an accident doubles every five km/h above the speed limit. (SR)
