Windsor Police have charged a 21 year old Windsor man under the Provincial Stunt Driving Legislation after a traffic enforcement officer conducting radar enforcement clocked a motorcycle travelling at 84 km/h over the posted speed limit.
On Saturday, May 21, 2011 at 5:50 p.m., a Windsor Police Traffic Enforcement Officer was conducting radar enforcement on South Cameron Blvd. near Northwood St. The officer’s attention was drawn to a red motorcycle accelerating at a high rate of speed northbound on South Cameron St from Dougall Ave. South Cameron Blvd. is a posted 50 km/h zone between Dougall Ave. to the south and Tecumseh Rd to the north. The officer recorded the motorcycle’s speed at 134 km/h in the posted 50 km/h zone.
As the motorcycle approached the intersection of Tecumseh Rd. it was unable to negotiate the sharp left curve due to its excessive speed and proceeded to drive into a parking lot located off to the side of South Cameron Blvd. The officer was able to stop the motorcycle in the parking lot as the driver attempted to exit the lot. The driver was unable to produce the registration of the motorcycle or proof of insurance and advised the officer that he had just purchased the motorcycle on Friday.
Charged with Performing a Stunt on a Highway (Speeding – 134 km/h in a posted 50 km/h zone), Using a plate not authorized for a vehicle, and Driving a Motor Vehicle With No Insurance is Frank Richard Nelson of Windsor.
The motorcycle was impounded for seven days and the accused’s drivers licence was also suspended for seven days.
