A pair of brothers racing each other along Limebank Road in Ottawa; and a Lamborghini driver nailed on Highway 7 were among the high-milers who started the week with a stunt driving charge, a tow to the impound lot and a driver's licence suspension.
The OPP stopped the purple Lamborghini on Highway 7 near Hazeldean Road going 168 km/h in the 100 km/h zone—which would be dangerous even if the road had been bare and dry, police noted.
Ahead of Tuesday's storm, “adjust your driving as it starts falling in your area,” they warned.
The brothers, meanwhile, were clocked at 141 km/h in an 80 km/h zone at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Const. Phil Kane reported.
