Speedy Senior: "I'm No Street Racer"
A 76-year-old Pembroke-area man doesn't see himself as a street racer, but the law clearly does.
Norman Harding was charged going 50 km/h over the speed limit on Jan. 17. As a result, his car was impounded, his licence was suspended for seven days and he was fined $2,000.
Harding feels the new Safer Roads for a Safer Ontario Act was aimed at street racers, not an elderly man in a hurry driving his wife to a non-emergency doctor's appointment.
"Hopefully, I can explain to them that I am not this kind of person," said the soft-spoken man of his Feb. 21 court date in Killaloe.
