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.
