An Ottawa man was caught driving his 2010 Jaguar West on Highway 401. Khalil Kanaan was caught driving at over 190 KPH(118 MPH).
Const. Jackie Perry said an officer was monitoring the highway using stationary radar when the black 2010 Jaguar, blew by at around 4:18 a.m. Perry said the officer activated the cruiser’s emergency lights and as he got closer “the vehicle slowed immediately.” Perry also said there wasn’t much traffic at the time.
“That’s a significant speed out there. We do seize a lot of vehicles under the racing legislation — the stunt legislation,” Perry said. “Thankfully we don’t see a lot like this.”
Kanaan has had his license suspended for seven days. In addition, his Jag speedster will be impounded for seven days.
Kanaan has been referred to a driver's education program where he will have to complete a seven day course of training. He will have to go to a traffic court on May 8. He has been charged with stunt driving. The charge of stunt driving may result in the man having his license suspended for a longer period of time. He may also have to complete additional driver's safety training, pay a fine, and may even be required to do community service.
It was reported that Kanaan was driving at a time when there were very few cars on the road, and there was no report of a crash.
