Hamilton Police have charged a driver with several offences after clocking their SUV travelling 63 km/h over the speed limit on the Red Hill Valley Parkway (RHVP) recently.
In a Tweet sent Monday (Jan. 4) morning, police are warning drivers to slow down after one of their officers conducted a traffic stop when they recorded a car driving 143 km/h on the 80 km/h highway.
The driver had their licence and car seized for a week as a result, and they have been charged with speeding and stunt driving as well as failure to have insurance.
The warning comes after a 25-year-old Hamilton woman was killed over the weekend on the RHVP in a single-vehicle collision.
Police are still in the process of investigating the collision where the woman’s car left the roadway and drove approximately 100 m before crashing into a train bridge abutment.
