A driver was caught doing almost double the speed limit in front of a Burlington school today (Feb. 22).

Halton Regional Police, who have been closing monitoring school zones this week, clocked the driver going 114 km/ h in a posted 60 lm/h zone.

The action took place in front of M.M. Robinson High School on Upper Middle Road.

Police say the driver will now face a court date and was given a 14-day vehicle impoundment and a licence suspension of 30 days.

Yesterday (Feb 21), police stationed near schools pulled over several vehicles for infractions.

On Plains Road near Maplehurst Public School one driver was issued a ticket amounting to $474 for travelling at a rate of 72 km/h in a Community Safety Zone where the maximum is 40 km/h.

As well, school zone enforcement at St. John Catholic Elementary School on Brant Street led to charges against a driver.

In this case, police say the motorist was pulled over for failing to stop at a stop sign. Upon further investigation, officers found the person was already under suspension for using a cellphone while driving. This offence carries an immediate seven-day vehicle impoundment and a charge of driving with a suspended licence.
