Guys, we all understand the temptation for a little speed when you have the power under your feet. But almost triple the posted speed limit? It’s not even close to a little. And in the case of this Lamborghini Aventador driver, some moments of acceleration come at a great price. Fortunately, the assessment interval did not result in any accidents or injuries.
York Regional Police shared the incident on Twitter. Located in Canada north of Toronto, the York Territory was founded in 1970 and law enforcement doesn’t mess with speeding. Then again, we can’t imagine any district where speeds of 170 km/h mph in the 60 km/h zone would be ignored. This equates to 106 mph in the 37-mph zone, almost triple the posted limit. And apparently, this particular road section also experienced the highest number of accidents in the region.

The driver was clearly caught, but the post didn’t mention anything about jail terms or fines. We did see the driver receive a 30-day license suspension, and a tow truck taking an expensive Lamborghini for a trip to the confiscated yard. However, the car will be returned to the driver after 15 days. In this case, it’s not a permanent confiscation like the Corvette Z06 which was recently seized by the Florida Sheriff’s Office.
Judging by the series of follow-up comments, the 30-day license suspension and 15-day detention seem a light sentence to many. Some commentators suggested suspending the longer license with permanent confiscation of the Aventador or even destroying it completely. The Tweet clearly offers limited information about the crime; it seems the driver at least stopped without chasing. With a V12 putting out around 700 horsepower (more in some trim levels), this car can definitely hit 106 mph in just a few seconds, and more than that. Still, you can’t outrun the radio.
Stay safe out there everyone. And don’t lose your head when it comes to speed, lest you lose your car or even your life.
