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.
