A police school-zone blitz as kids headed back to class Monday after March break netted speeders who clearly need some schooling themselves.

More than two dozen officers with the traffic section will be out all week and across the city handing out failing grades – and hefty tickets – for drivers like the one nabbed going 120 km/h in a 50 km/h school zone Monday morning.

That was so fast that only an image of the DeLorean from Back to the Future could illustrate it in Const. Jon Hall’s tweet about it. The driver netted a stunt-driving charge, had his license suspended and car impounded for a week and will appear in court. The fine ranges from $2,000 to $10,000.
