A man was stopped while driving an airport limousine at more than twice the legal speed limit early Thursday morning, according to police.

Toronto police say a 2003 Lincoln airport limousine was stopped by officers conducting a speed check on Lakeshore Boulevard East, near Logan Avenue at about 3:25 a.m.

Police said the limousine was clocked driving 121 km/h in a 60 km/h zone.

A 55-year-old man has been charged under Ontario's stunt-driving legislation.

His driver's licence has been suspended for seven days and his vehicle has been impounded for seven days.

Toronto police have charged 83 people under the Province's Stunt Racing legislation so far this year, compared to 138 people charged of the same period of time last year.

The area on Lakeshore Boulevard East is a mix of residential and business areas mixed with parkland and cycling paths. Several collisions have occurred in the area in recent years, including one resulting in the death of a pedestrian.
