A 21-year-old young man driving under the influence of alcohol at more than 120 km/h on the Jacques-Cartier Bridge was caught by the Sûreté du Québec (SQ).

The young driver was stopped during the night from Saturday to Sunday while he was driving at high speed on the Jacques-Cartier Bridge, where the maximum speed limit is 50 km/h.

Worse, he was driving impaired. “He obtained a result of more than double the allowable limit on the approved breathalyzer test,” the SQ said in a press release.

The young offender received a fine of $1,414, along with 14 demerit points. His driver’s license was suspended for a period of 90 days and his vehicle was seized for a period of 30 days.

“Speed ​​is one of the leading causes of fatal collisions to occur on Quebec roads,” the SQ pointed out.
