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.”
