In the United States, similar trends were observed. Kerry Schmidt said in a 14-minute Periscope post. 191MPH 280ft/sec 85m/sec 19 year old driver charged with #StreetRacing and Criminal Dangerous Driving. He was among the 150 drivers that have been charged with street racing or stunt racing since the start of May, according to Ontario Provincial Police (OPP).
The 18-year-old was behind the wheel of a Mercedes with a 19-year-old passenger on Sunday when he was caught going about a “football field per second,” OPP Sgt. In April, states across the country reported spikes in speeding and police say crashes are more often severe. Including this car that was stopped last night for going 308km/h on the QEW. According to Ontario’s Highway Safety Division, 150 people have charged and 150 cars have been impounded since May 1.

“This is the fastest speed that I’ve ever heard of,” Schmidt said, adding that the limit was 100 kilometers per hour (or 62 mph). First published on May 12, 2020 / 10:49 AM “This vehicle would have been completely destroyed.”
With fewer drivers on the road amid coronavirus-related restrictions, speedsters have taken advantage. 150 drivers charged and 150 vehicles impounded for 7 days since May 1 in the #GTA by OPP. Stunt driving carries fines up to $10,000 and can end with six months in jail and a loss of license for up to two years, according to Schmidt. “If you’re going at those kind of speeds, you have to understand the risks that you’re putting yourself, the passenger who you have with you, along with all the other drivers and occupants and road users on the highways that you’re blowing the doors off of,” Schmidt said. While no one was hurt, Schmidt warned the outcome could have been very different.”This could have turned into the most devastating fatal crash ever,” Schimidt said.
