Driver earns $5000 in fines, 40 demerit points

A motorist clocked doing 200-kilometres an hour in a 70 zone while heading for Highway 13 overnight will pay dearly both for speeding and for refusing to pull over for Laval police.

The 33-year old driver was eventually nabbed by Montreal police.

He was handed 16 tickets with fines totaling nearly five-thousand dollars.

As well, he racked up 40 demerit points and must pay to get his car back because it was impounded by police.

    I've always said that anyone running from the police should get a MANDATORY 2-5 year term in prison regardless of the circumstance. This scum didn't care for the safety of anyone. He should lose his car, get fined and do serious jail time. Almost every week some idiot runs from the cops, time it stops.

      @ric Where did it say he was running from the cops? He flew by them going 200km/h, it took them time to catch up going from 0km/h. When they eventually did, he pulled over.

      Not saying the guy isn't an idiot mind you, but 2-5 years seems a bit harsh. Drunk drivers don't even get 2-5 years and are far more likely to kill someone.

      If he refused to pull over I'd agree, but nowhere did they state it was a chase.

    Congratulations! Well deserved!

    Give the man a bus pass and sentence him to wiping rear ends at a geriatric hospital!

    I don't think working with the elderly should be used as a punishment....perhaps shovelling downtown sidewalks, emptying trash cans and cleaning metro stations could be part of his sentence!
