A 28-year-old man from London, Ontario is being forced to pay $18,000 in rental fees after renting a Lamborghini and allegedly getting caught for stunt driving. Peel Region Police said that the man was testing out the rental and was caught going 122 km/h in a 60 km/h zone in Brampton.
Any driver in Ontario who is caught stunt driving is subject to a 14-day vehicle impoundment. Now that the Lamborghini is impounded and unable to return to the rental car company, the man will be forced to pay $18,000 in fees. As of July 1, stunt driving laws became tougher as the vehicle impoundment period went from 7-days to 14-days.
On top of that, anyone caught going 40 km/h or over in a zone where the maximum is less than 80 km/h will now be subjected to stunt driving. Before the change drivers would have to be going over 50 km/h on those roads to be charged with stunt driving. Motorists caught stunt driving will also face a 30-day roadside driver’s license suspension.
