Finally got a new car but lost my Lisence

I finally bought my self a second car (for those who were following It's a 2003 C32 AMG - 350HP. On my way back home from Toronto while driving the little monster, I was allegedly clocked at 148 km/h in an 80 km/h zone. For those who are familiar with section 172 of the Highway act, it means that my life is over.... my liscense was taken away from me and the car was impounded immediately. If convicted I'd be looking at up to $10,000 in fines, up to 6 months in jail time, up to two years in license suspension and may be rejected from any insurance company as this will stay on me record for the next 10 years. This is in addition to the towing and impound fees over a 7 day period.

I'm not going to make any execuses but I was passing two cars on highway 7 where there is only one lane going east. I underestimated the power of the C32 and in a blink of an eye I was allegedly going 148 km/h. I say allegedly because I have no idea how fast I was going when I was passing.

Perhaps the one thing that really got to me is my wife who was waiting for my safe return home on such a windy day (Saturday May 8). My cell phone had no power so the OPP officer (or dispatch) made the call to my wife. When the caller identified themselves as "this is the Ontario Provincial Police, we are calling regarding your husband", my wife almost fainted. I did not know this until I got home... seeing my wife in tears holding my almost two-years old daughter. Imagine the thoughts that were going through her head one day prior to mothers' day. I hate speedsters, stunt drivers and I'm a mature, well-educated man who understands the consequences of speeding. Even if I'm not this man, the sight I came to see when I got home will forever be a reminder of the consequences. No fine, suspension, or jail time will ever teach such a lesson!

I had hoped that this post would be a cheerful post with pictures of the C32, but unfortunately, here I sit writing a post about an incident that may have dire consequences.

I will of course fight this using professional help. My court date is June 22 (on my daughter's two-year B-day).
