Ottawa police

A G2 driver going 85 km/h over the speed limit on a city road is one of the drivers added to the Ottawa police list of "fast lane follies" this year.

The Ottawa Police Traffic Unit says officers spotted a G2 driver going 165 km/h in an 80 km/h zone on Mitch Owens Road over the weekend.

A Quebec driver was also stopped going 104 km/h in a 60 km/h zone on Bank Street at Sieveright Avenue.

"The fast lane follies continue over the weekend …OPS Traffic adding a few more to 2024's growing list," police said on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.

On Friday, the OPP charged a G2 driver with stunt racing after being caught going 174 km/h on Highway 417 in Ottawa.

"Driver faces a minimum $2,000 fine and 6 demerit points if convicted," the OPP said. Top Stories
