Two drivers speeding excessively were stopped by Sûreté du Québec officers on Highway 10 on Saturday evening.

First, around 7:30 p.m., a first driver was stopped while driving eastbound at a speed of 186 km/h in a 100 km/h zone. The 30-year-old Sherbrooke resident received a ticket for $1,676, in addition to 18 demerit points.

His driving license was suspended for a period of 7 days, adds the SQ in a press release.

About thirty minutes later, a second driver was caught speeding on Highway 10. The 32-year-old man, also driving eastbound, was stopped at 184 km/h in a 100 km/h zone. The Sherbrooke resident was issued a $1,600 ticket and 18 demerit points.

In addition to seeing his license suspended for 7 days, the vehicle he was driving was impounded.
