RCMP say the teen was doing 190 km/h in a 100 km/h zone on Highway 34 in a Ford Fusion. He told the officer that he was “stressed out about school and needed to get home quickly.”

Along with the hefty fine, the teen was also issued a serious offence notice and will have his licence renewed by Manitoba Public Insurance.
