A 21-year-old woman has been charged after driving nearly 100 km/h over the speed limit in Richmond Hill.
An officer spotted a vehicle travelling at 175 km/h in a posted 80 km/h speed limit zone on Highway 7 in the area of Hunters Point Drive just after midnight.
York Police say the BMW was travelling at a high rate of speed and used the LASER speed measuring device to confirm that the car was travelling at 175 Km/h.
The driver of the 2009 BMW stopped for police, was investigated and the car was impounded for seven days.
21 year old Glikeria Nikiforova of Richmond Hill is now charged with Stunt Driving and Speeding.
Officers had been targeting this area for speeding because one week ago a motorcyclist was caught riding at 197 Km/h on this same stretch of roadway.
