Police say an officer stopped a G2 driver for travelling nearly 90km/h over the posted limit north of Grand Valley Wednesday morning.

According to Dufferin OPP, the driver was speeding at 166km/h through the 80km/h zone along County Road 24, north of Grand Valley.

"This decision cost this driver their DL (driver's licence) for 30 days," OPP posted to Twitter regarding the traffic stop.
