A driver in Ontario is facing a hefty bill after police caught him zooming down a local road in Brampton in a flashy rental.

According to Peel Regional Police, a 28-year-old resident from London, Ontario, was testing out a lime green Lamborghini and went double over the posted speed limit. The driver was caught going 122 km/h in a 60 km/h zone.

"Due to the 14 day impoundment fee this rental will now cost this 28yr/old London Resident $18,000 once it is returned to the rental company," police wrote in a tweet.

Ontario's new Moving Ontarians More Safely Act (MOMS) came into effect earlier this summer on July 1. This act is meant to prevent stunt driving, street racing and aggressive driving by lengthening license suspensions and vehicle impoundments.

Anyone who is caught driving 40 km/h or more over the speed limit where the limit is 80 km/h or lower could have their vehicle impounded for 14 days and their driver's license suspended for 30 days.

Drivers found guilty of stunt driving can also face a fine of $2,000 to $10,000 and can even be sentenced to up to six months in jail.
