A desire to get to the cottage before sunset was cited by an Ontario woman accused of driving at nearly double the speed limit.
Ontario Provincial Police say a car was clocked at 150 kilometres an hour in an 80 km/h zone earlier this week on the Bluewater Veteran’s Highway near St. Joseph, on Lake Huron.
The driver told police she was speeding in an attempt to make it to the cottage to see the sunset.
There was just one problem with her explanation. She was pulled over at 8:20 a.m.
A 25-year-old woman has been charged under Ontario’s racing legislation. Her licence has also been suspended for seven days, and her car will be impounded for the week.
She’s due in court in Goderich, Ont., on Sept. 1 to answer to the charge.
