The Haliburton Highlands O.P.P. is reminding the public that stunt driving can cost you.
An officer was doing a radar patrol of Highway 35 in Minden Hills on Sunday morning.
The officer allegedly clocked the 54-year old male driver driving at 137 kilometres an hour.
The suspect had his vehicle impounded and his driver’s licence suspended for seven days.
The Haliburton Highlands detachment wants to remind people that driving 50 kilometres an hour is considered stunt driving.
Penalties for the offence include a fine anywhere between $2,000 and $10,000 as well as a possible suspension of your driver’s licence for up to two years.
