A 34-year-old man has had his car towed and his licence suspended after a police officer clocked a car travelling 186 kilometres an hour on the Gardiner Expressway.
Police say an officer was driving west on the highway near Kipling Avenue when he noticed a car speeding by at around 10 a.m. Wednesday morning.
A speed radar clocked the car driving at a speed of 186 km/h in a 100 km/h zone.
The officer also noted the car was making multiple lane changes as it headed west toward Mississauga.
Police were able to pull over a vehicle, a 2006 Audi A3, when heavy traffic slowed traffic along the highway.
The male suspect has been charged under Ontario's stunt driving laws, which mandates that all drivers suspected of going 50 kilometres over the posted speed limit have their driver's licence suspended for seven days and their car towed for a week.


  1. Perhaps you can answer this question.
    Can you tell me why some minor's names are released when they are charged under HTA 172 and others are not or why some names are released and then in this case from last night, the name is not? Is it due to CCC infractions that may be carried into the charge such as impairment or possession of drugs?

    Here's an example of a name that was released:

    And an example of name that wasn't released:

    I know you are a very busy police dept. so please take your time in responding to this.

  2. Thanks for the question. I honestly can't answer for how some police services determine how or when they will release the names of persons charged. There are many rules and laws that must be respected in terms of the names of persons charged and when the age of a charged person deems them a "Youth" more rules jump in.
    In the cases that you are talking about, the difference is Crimial Charges. Therefore, no name released in the later case of the teen impaired...oops, I mean, allegedly impaired.
