Teen caught driving 191 mph in his father’s car — more than triple the speed limit

A teenager was caught driving 191 mph in his father’s car on a highway in Ontario – more than triple the speed limit, police said. He was among the 150 drivers that have been charged with street racing or stunt racing since the start of May, according to Ontario Provincial Police (OPP).

The 18-year-old was behind the wheel of a Mercedes with a 19-year-old passenger on Sunday when he was caught going about a “football field per second,”  OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said in a 14-minute Periscope post. The OPP Highway Safety Division’s Twitter account posted a photo of the radar gun catching him speeding and the vehicle being towed away.

“This is the fastest speed that I’ve ever heard of,” Schmidt said, adding that the limit was 100 kilometers per hour (or 62 mph). “The driver was obviously taken off the road immediately.”
