An 18-year-old speedster is facing more than $1,500 in total fines after being caught barreling down the Perimeter Highway earlier this month.

Manitoba RCMP said they busted the driver — who didn’t have a licence — near Centreport on Oct. 1, travelling 166 km/h.

After being pulled over, the driver was handed a whopping $914 ticket for speeding, and fines just shy of $300 each for driving without a licence and operating a vehicle without the owner’s consent.
