CrimeProvince increases penalties for stunt driving

The Ontario government has increased penalties for those caught stunt driving, effective April 1, 2022.

Drivers who are convicted of stunt driving in the province of Ontario must complete a driver improvement course within 60 days of conviction, or their licence will be cancelled.

Anyone caught driving 40 km/hr or more above the speed limit, where the speed limit is set at less than 80 km/hr, will face stunt driving charges.

In areas where the speed limit is above 80 km/h, a motorist will face stunt driving charges if travelling more than 50 km/hr above the limit.
Drivers also face a 30-day roadside driver’s licence suspension, and a 14-day vehicle impoundment.

The maximum fine for stunt driving in Ontario is $10,000. Convicted drivers could also face up to six months in prison.
