    He observed the vehicle travelling at a high rate of speed, coming close to a car in lane 1. The vehicle swerved into lane 2, and then back into lane one. He travelled parallel with the vehicle, never losing sight of the vehicle until he was able to get into the express lanes. Based on his own speed of 140 kilometres per hour, he estimated that the speed of the Cobalt was in excess of 140 kilometres per hour on a consistent basis.


    17 In the area of Meadowvale Road he was able to place his vehicle directly behind the Cobalt in lane one. He observed the Cobalt swerve from lane one to lane two and then back into lane one passing other vehicles that were already in lane one ahead of it.


    18 His vehicle was equipped with a Bee III moving radar speed measuring device with a capability of accurately measuring the speed of motor vehicles.

    KO'd.
