On April 19 around 10:30 a.m., a York Regional Police officer was giving an educational presentation on speed enforcement to a group of students outside St. Augustine Catholic High School. It was then the officer saw a vehicle zoom by the school on Rodick Road.
The officer clocked the driver’s speed with his radar at 127 km/h. The posted speed limit of Rodick near Calvert Road is 40 km/h because of the nearby school and residential areas.
Though the officer was unable to stop the vehicle, an officer conducting patrol up the road did so and investigated.
York Regional Police says excessive speed is a major contributing factor to many serious and fatal collisions on local roads. Yorkregion.com
