Exotic car group nailed for stunt driving in Niagara
6 people are facing speeding and stunt driving charges after a group of exotic cars - taking a 5 hour tour of the Niagara Region - were caught by local police.
Ultimate Exotics is a Stoney Creek company that allows customers to take out high end sports cars for VIP tours. Every driver has a chance to drive the different cars as they switch at certain points along the tour.
Just before noon yesterday police stopped the group along a route in Niagara-on-the-Lake where several speed limits were being ignored, in some cases the cars going 50km over the posted limits.
As a result, all six drivers were charged with various offences, including four of them who had their licences suspended and vehicles towed and seized for seven days.
1. A 37 year-old male from Hamilton was driving a grey 2010 Porsche Cayenne and faces 4 Highway Traffic Act charges, including speeding (124 km/h in a 70 km/h zone), and stunting.
2. A 58 year-old male from Burlington was driving an orange 2016 Lamborghini and faces one charge of speeding (117 km/h in a 70 km/h zone) under the Highway Traffic Act.
3. A 25 year-old male from Toronto was driving a red 2014 McLaren and faces two Highway Traffic Act charges, including speeding (137 km/h in a 70 km/h zone), and stunting.
4. A 27 year-old female from Oakville was driving a blue 2016 Corvette and faces one charge of careless driving under the Highway Traffic Act.
5. A 48 year-old male from Richmond Hill was driving a white 2016 Mercedes AMG GT R and faces two Highway Traffic Act charges, including speeding (148 km/h in a 70 km/h zone), and stunting.
6. A 57 year-old female from Quebec was driving a white 2016 Nissan GT-R and faces 3 Highway Traffic Act charges, including speeding (148 km/h in a 70 km/h zone) and stunting.
The Niagara Regional Police take speeding and aggressive driving very seriously as it is considered one of the fatal four reasons that contributes to fatalities on our roadways, and will continue to take enforcement action on those who show disregard.
