A Niagara man has been caught speeding at 111 km/h over the posted limit.
Police in Thorold used a radar gun to clock a man zipping by on motorcycle at 161 km/h in a 50 km/h zone Thursday afternoon. It happened on a long, straight stretch of the Welland Canals Parkway. "People do tend to use that as a bit of a speedway," says Niagara Regioal Police constable Jacqueline Fuentes. "But 111 kilometers over is a little exessive to anybody's standards."
Fuentes says police found the driver's licence was suspended, he was not insured and the plates on the bike were not intended for it.
A 45-year-old man from Welland has been handed nine tickets.
The motorcycle he was riding has also been impounded for seven days as part of a stunt driving charge.
