They say speed thrills, but also kills. Speeding can be defined as driving beyond the posted speed limit or driving too fast for the road conditions.
Speed limit laws are designed in order to protect both the driver and passenger on the roads and highways. Therefore, if one person breaks this law it endangers not only him or herself, but the people in the vicinity of the violator.
But apparently today in Mississauga, speeding was not the concern for this 15-year old who was pulled over on Highway 10. Not only was this 15-year-old over speeding at 133km/h, but had no license, no plates and no insurance.
The OPP tweeted today, “Bad combination…No licence, no insurance and no plates. A 15-year-old from Mississauga was stopped this morning on Highway 10 @DufferinRoads travelling 133km/hr. #DufferinOPP#noexcuses”
Ontario Ministry of Transportation advises drivers to stay within the maximum speed limit posted on signs along all roads. As a general rule, the Ministry states that drivers will be safer if they drove at the same speed as traffic around them, without going over the speed limit. It is advised to always drive at a speed that will let you stop safely, whether roads are wet or dry.
