PostSubject: Kids not strapped in car clocked at 212 km/h UPDATE   Wed 24 Oct 2012, 12:12 am

As if blasting down Hwy. 401 at more than 200 km/h wasn’t bad enough, the driver also had two children younger than seven who weren’t properly secured in their seats.

OPP officers were shaking their heads at the charges Monday against a 29-year-old Toronto woman.

“I’m dumbfounded why someone would travel at that speed on their own, let alone with two young kids in the car,” OPP Sgt. David Rektor said Tuesday. “It’s really hard to comprehend.”

The driver’s “selfish behaviour” put other drivers at risk, he said.

The car, a 2013 Merecedes-Benz CLX luxury sedan, was clocked at 212 km/h heading east on Hwy. 401 near Merlin Rd. in Chatham-Kent, OPP said.

The driver ignored two cruisers set up to stop speeders and continued travelling at high speed until the vehicle was stopped near Furnival Rd. near Rodney in Elgin County at about 2 p.m.

A six-year-old girl and three-year-old boy weren’t properly secured in car seats, police said.

Rektor, who has witnessed several horrific crash scenes, said nothing he’s seen would compare to the results of crashing at more than 200 km/h.

“A collision at 50 km/h is equal to the impact one would sustain in falling from a three-storey building. A crash at 212 km/h would likely be (non-survivable) in a conventional vehicle.

“I’ve seen collisions at 100 km/h. The debris field is often spread several hundred metres long and the injuries have often been substantial, if not fatal. I can’t even imagine what the debris field would look like involving a vehicle at such a high rate of speed. I can tell you from my experience the damage would be catastrophic.”

The woman is charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, racing and two counts of failing to ensure a child is properly secured.

The vehicle was impounded for seven days and her driver’s licence is suspended for a week.

A CAA spokesperson said a conviction for stunt driving makes a motorist almost uninsurable.

“We do not insure people who have been charged and convicted of stunt racing,” Silvana Aceto said. “This is the case with most standard insurance companies. There are a few non-standard companies that will insure those folks and they’ll charge them three to four times higher their (normal) rates.”

Middlesex OPP stopped a driver at 194 km/h on the 401 just three days earlier.

I'm disgusted with her. She should be charged with child endangerment and CAS should be involved.

The car, a 2013 Merecedes-Benz CLX luxury sedan...base price is $84,800.00.

She will just buy her way out.

License suspended for a week? Are they kidding? Her license should be suspended for 5 years and CAS involved for her intentionally endangering her children and the public.

COURT: Woman fined, suspended after travelling 212 km/h on Highway 401



A 29-year-old Toronto woman has received a hefty fine and a licence
suspension after reaching speeds exceeding 200 km/h through Chatham-Kent
with her two young children improperly secured in the back seat of the
vehicle.

Demah Alnajjar's matter was scheduled to be dealt with in a Chatham
court on Friday, but court heard the matter had already been resolved.

The Chatham Daily News learned from Alnajjar's lawyer that a
resolution had been reached on Feb. 14 in the Provincial Offences Court
in St. Thomas.

According to the records in court, Alnajjar was charged with stunt
driving under the Highway Traffic Act, which resulted in a $4,005 fine
and a six-month driver's licence suspension.

Alnajjar was pursued by OPP officers from both the Chatham and Elgin
detachments after she was clocked on radar travelling at 212 km/h in a
100 km/h zone in the eastbound lanes of Highway 401, near the Merlin
Road overpass, just before 2 p.m. on Oct. 22, 2012.

According to the OPP, Alnajjar continued driving for another 70
kilometres, passing through at least one construction zone, travelling
at speeds ranging from 170 km/h to 212 km/h.

It took officers 20 minutes to safely pull over the white, 2013
Mercedes Benz CLX she was driving. She was stopped without incident near
Furnival Road in Elgin County after being signalled by a police cruiser
with its lights and sirens activated.

After stopping the vehicle, officers discovered a six-year-old girl
and three-year-old boy were not property secured in their child booster
seats.

Alnajjar was originally charged with dangerous operation of a motor
vehicle and two charges of failing to secure young children in booster
seats.

Chatham-Kent OPP media relations officer Const. Aaron McPhail said
this incident involved “one of the highest speeds that I can recall in
the area.”

He said the higher the speed, the greater the risk of being in a fatal crash.

“This could have had tragic consequences,” McPhail said, adding the
OPP has investigated numerous collisions where speed was a factor
resulting in fatalities and serious injuries.

He said when someone is driving that fast, “the risk is very significant . . . to the driver, the passengers and to the public.

“In this case, we were pleased that we could get the vehicle stopped
safely and that there were no serious injuries,” McPhail added.

He said traffic safety is a core function of the OPP and its
provincial traffic safety program has identified aggressive driving as
“one of the four major causal factors of fatalities on Ontario's roads.”

"a $4,005 fine nd a six-month driver's licence suspension"

I've always said are laws are way too laxed. She should have at least gotten IMO a $12,000 fine and 7 year licence suspension. That tiddly punishment she got will not discourage her from doing it again.

Turns out a cheap Mercedes is 84k, my bad. This bitch (sorry, if you take that kind of risk with children under 6, you're a fucking bitch) should've been burned at the stake. No suspension, no fine....life in prison. Mess with me, good...mess with my wife, I'm pissed....mess with children? FUCK YOU.
