Driver accused of stunt driving in Mono was 'trying to clear my head'

Provincial police handed a stunt driving charge to a 22-year-old woman who they say was clocked travelling nearly 70km/h over the limit in Mono.

When officers asked the 22-year-old driver why she was speeding, police said she replied, " I was trying to clear my head."

They say she was driving 147km/h in an 80 zone.

"No excuse is worthy of those speeds," tweeted OPP regarding the incident.

Under the new stunt driving law, the woman's license was suspended for 30 days, and a tow truck gave her vehicle a lift to the impound yard for two weeks.
