motorcyclist faces charges after posting a video of himself driving over 250km per hour

The need for speed and attention on a motorcycle has cost him charges.

The York Regional Police Department tweeted a video of a vehicle speeding over 250 km/h in traffic on Friday.

Cops also tweeted, “How it began:” with a video of the man driving, followed by “How it’s going:” with an image of the seized bike.

Police also tweeted the video of the motorbike exceeding 260 km/h, which the driver had posted to his TikTok and Instagram accounts.

Following an investigation and public tips, police said he faces many hazardous driving and stunt driving offenses.

The police department subsequently added another comment:

” He won’t be shooting GoPro from his bike for a time, either, because it’s been confiscated for 14 days.”

Meanwhile, Halton Regional Police are seeking the public’s aid in identifying the driver of a motorcycle who failed to stop for authorities.

According to police, an officer was conducting proactive patrols in the Millcroft area of Burlington on Aug. 10 in response to previous traffic complaints.

A motorbike was witnessed speeding, weaving back and forth, and failing to stop at a stop sign near Sarazen Dr. and Couples Cr. around 3 p.m. The police attempted to halt the motorcycle, but the driver took off at a fast speed and fled the scene.

The motorcycle is described as a black sport bike with a license plate from Ontario.

The motorbike driver is described as a male, white, between the ages of 20 and 35, of average height and stocky build. He was dressed in a black helmet, a black T-shirt, and dark blue pants.

Anyone with information on the driver’s identity should contact the investigator at 905-825-4777, ext. 2391, or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
