I have received an update from Piper that he would like posted. Here it is:
My court date has come and gone and I got my charge 'changed', esentially. Instead of being charged under HTA 172(1) (that new street racing act) I'll be getting a straight speeding ticket as if I got caught before HTA 172(1). So, it's a way smaller fine, no further suspension but still 6 demerit points. Lesson learned. Wouldn't say I got off lucky, but I think it's a fair turn of events....considering I have no priors and this law isn't targeting the people it was originally meant to (street racers). Personal opinions about this law aside, let my example stand as a lesson to everyone. Keep your speed down on the highways, lest you want to help fund your local towing company and the provincial coffers.
