A driver in northwest Montreal may be in trouble with the police – if they can catch him.

Investigators are trying to track down a driver who filmed himself speeding along Highway 15 in the town of Mirabel at speeds of 190 kilometers per hour – about the equivalent of 118 miles per hour in the United States.

The brazen driver cackles and laughs while swerving through law-abiding traffic and passing along the shoulder several times. Police in the area say they have noticed an uptick in drivers filming their own illegal maneuvers and posting the videos online.

In this case, they're concerned with the lack of regard the driver has for vehicular laws and his fellow motorists. The video, police tell the CBC News, has helped them develop several leads.

If caught, the driver could face charges for dangerous driving, speeding and passing on the shoulder (which he does multiple times in the video above). He could also face more than $1,000 in fines and several demerit points on his license.

      Idiots like this should be locked up in high-security-hard-labor camps. It's not him that I am worry about but the families and other people on the road. Image this f...k slamming into a minivan with family of 4....with small kids sleeping inside...

        Imagine this. You're in the left hand lane not passing and an 18 wheeler pushes you into the overpass supports. If you can't drive get off the road.

      The Quebecers drive WELL over the speed limit when they come down to the U.S., so is it hard to imagine what they do at home?

      Yep, we were are all adolescents once, back when I was young and invincible, I got what I consider to be the queen mother of all speeding tickets. 135 mph in a 35 mph construction zone (100mph over the limit). I-19 south of Tucson at Green Valley back when they were building the first exit to Green Valley off 19. No lane changing or other antics, just plain ol' hauling butt on a nearly deserted interstate. State police car was chasing back before I got to the construction zone, but I was caught IN the construction zone (weekend, no workers on the site). Yes, the Arizona State Police can go quite a bit faster than 135 when needed and they are quite friendly if you don't give them a hard time. I got to keep my car and my license, and there was no jail time, but the local courthouse probably funded the Christmas party from the proceeds of my ticket. The lady at the "Pay Your Ticket" desk only said "Oh My!" and started with fingers on the calculator. I've realized my mortality and my financial vulnerability since then...

      Driving 2 or 3 times over the limit is not the issue, the issue is passing on the wrong side or on double yellow when and where you are no supposed to pass. If you want to act teh fool and kill yourself fine but don't endanger others while doing it. There are times when you are able to run 130+ mph but it all depends on the highway, here in Tennessee I have that fast driving I-40 but it all depends on the traffic and the stretch of road how fast you can and should go. You have to know your vehicle and the know how to drive safely at high speeds, when you get people who are not used to how cars handle at high speeds or they drive a Geo metro at 120 MPH then you have a problem.

      It is a known fact that women are attracted to powerful men. In general, most women will expect their men to be mature and provide financial stability along with long-term security. Vise versa, most men would expect their women to be beautiful and grace. ~~~~~ MillionaireLoveLinks_℃om ~~~~~ is for thousands of upscale men and beautiful women, who understand that ambition, success, and glamour are key elements of attraction. It's worth a try! I've gotten over 90 mph on the interstate without really thinking, but there isn't nearly as much of a speed difference between me and the other cars. Once I realize I'm going that fast I slow down. This kids are just stupid. Stupid for doing it, stupid for posting it. Hope they get caught.
