Motorcyclist gets clocked at 155 km/h in a 50 km/h zone; police officer finds him trying to hide between parked cars.

By Staff

BURLINGTON, ON.  July 17, 2013  It wasn’t quite what a Mississauga motorcycle driver expected Monday evening when he buzzed through a 60 mph zone and got clocked at 128 km/h.

At that speed the HRPS officer  doing  radar enforcement in the area of Walkers Line and New Street wasn’t able to catch the offender  but was able to make further observations, including the motorcycle accelerating to a speed of 155 km/h as it travelled northbound on Walkers Line from New Street and out of the officer’s sight.  This portion of roadway is a posted 50 km/h zone.

The officer methodically travelled up Walkers Line and near Harvester Road discovered the motorcycle and driver attempting to hide between two parked cars.

 A 28-year-old Mississauga man faces several charges including:  Racing, Speeding and Using Plates Not Authorized.  He is to appear in Burlington Court on August 20, 2013.

A little patience and a slow steady search for the offender should keep him on public transit for a spell.
