Speedster didnt even pause with police cruiser in plain sight

Brazen perhaps – or just inattentive – are words that the Durham Regional Police Service (DRPS) officers may be looking for to describe the driver of the car being towed away (image above) .

A marked cruiser in plain view didn’t stop this motorist from travelling at 139 on a 70 kmh stretch of Taunton Road, said DRPS West Division.

The driver was clocked at Pickering Concession Road 4 in the City of Pickering.

The motorist received five summons and had the driving licence suspended.

As the motor vehicle was impounded, the driver had to ask a family member for a ride home, police said.

Meanwhile, DRPS North Division yesterday charged a driver with stunt driving after the person was caught excessively speeding.

A 30-day licence suspension and 14-day vehicle impound (image below) followed.

The incident took place at Prince Albert in Scugog.

“Please pay attention to and obey the speed limit,” police said.
