2019 Aston Martin Vantage Seized After Driver Clocked 100 MPH In A School Zone

Crime / 22 Comments

The dumb driver could face a fine of up to $10,000 after flooring it in a new Aston Martin Vantage on the streets of Vancouver.

After being revealed last year, customer deliveries of the Aston Martin Vantage have started hitting the road. The V8-powered supercar has 503 horses under the hood and a top speed of 195 mph but trying to unleash its potential on a public road is never a good idea. This guy found out the hard way. They clearly didn't show much restraint, because the local police clocked the 31-year old male driving the Vantage at 98 mph on the streets of Vancouver, Canada. If that wasn't already bad enough, they hit this speed in a 25-mph school zone.

The only consolation is that it happened on a Sunday at 8 pm when the school obviously would have been closed, but it still doesn't excuse driving nearly four times over the speed limit in a school zone and thinking you can get away with it. That's just idiocy on another level.

The 31-year-old driver was charged with stunt driving, dangerous driving, and speeding. To set an example and discourage other enthusiasts from committing similar speeding offences, the supercar was also impounded. A photo released by police on social media shows the sorry-looking bright yellow Vantage being loaded onto the back of a truck.

As well as having your car impounded for seven days, anyone issued a stunt driving ticket in the province of Ontario has their license suspended for a week. If convicted of stunt driving, this Aston Martin driver could be fined between $2,000 and $10,000, have their license suspended for up to two years, and even spend up to six years in jail, according to CBC.
