PORT HOPE, Ont. -- This James Bond didn't have a licence to speed -- in fact, police say he had no licence at all.
Provincial police say a man who hasn't had a driver's licence since the mid-1980s has been charged with driving offences north of Port Hope, about 110 kilometres east of Toronto.
Police say they clocked a southbound vehicle Sunday on County Road 28 at 104 kilometres an hour in a posted 80 zone.
The officer followed the SUV into a parking lot and found the person he had seen when the vehicle passed him was now sitting in the passenger's side. The man denied being the driver but reconsidered after the officer warned both male occupants about obstructing police for switching positions.
Police say the man finally admitted he was the driver, and it was determined the man has been suspended since 1985.
Kenneth James Bond, 52, of Bowmanville, is due in court Feb. 6 to face two counts of driving while under suspension and speeding
