Provincial police say they hit the brakes on a young driver who was in a hurry this week.

Officers in Elgin County say it was around 1 a.m. Monday when they stopped a vehicle travelling in excess of 145 km/h in a posted 80 km/h zone on Talbot Line near Carter Road, east of Aylmer.

As a result of their investigation, officers say an 18-year-old woman from Bayham was charged with stunt driving and failure to have her insurance card.
