Illustration for article titled Old Canadian Busted For Racing Olds Under New Law

Ontario police caught a young-at-heart and lead-of-foot 85-year-old Canadian man going 100 mph (40 mph over the speed limit) in his Oldsmobile Intrigue, which makes him the oldest person to be charged under a new street racing law. The new law states that anyone going more than 31 mph over the speed limit can be charged with racing, even if it's just solo racing. The man, one of 2,300 to be busted under the law, claims he was just "going to the bank and shopping."


Those who violate this law are charged a fine of $2,000 and lose their car and their driving license for a week. That mean Old Man McSpeedy is just going to have to take the bus for his high-speed banking and shopping needs. [Globe & Mail]
