STRATFORD, Ont. - Police say a driver pulled over in southwestern Ontario on Wednesday morning needed a pilot's licence.
At about 1 a.m., a provincial police officer spotted a car travelling at "extremely high speed" on Perth Line 20 southwest of Stratford.
Police say the officer's radar clocked the Subaru at 191 km/h -- 111 km/h above the posted speed limit.
The car was pulled over two concession roads west of the location where its speed was determined.
Investigators say the driver and his female passenger said they were on their way to the beach in Grand Bend to "watch the water."
A 24-year-old Cambridge man is charged with racing a motor vehicle and has lost his car and licence for a week.
