25 drivers caught stunt driving last weekend

A 44-year-old Vaughan man clocked driving 128 kilometres over the posted speed limit was one of 25 drivers charged with stunt driving and racing-related incidents this past weekend.

The man was charged with dangerous operation, stunt driving and speeding after his vehicle was pulled over on Sunday, Nov. 7 at 12:45 p.m. on Major Mackenzie Drive west of Pine Valley Drive in Vaughan, York Regional Police report. He was allegedly driving 178 kilometres an hour in a 50 kilometres-an-hour zone. His licence was suspended for 30 days.

“Excessive speed has consistently been one of the greatest contributing factors in many fatal collisions that have occurred on York Region roads,” says Const. Maniva Armstrong. “Street racers put themselves and unsuspecting road users at risk of death or serious injury when they choose to disobey traffic laws and drive without due care and control and with a disregard for public safety.”

Anyone who witnesses dangerous driving is asked to call 9-1-1 and to try to note the vehicle’s location, direction of travel, make, model, licence plate number and driver’s description. All vehicles pulled over for stunt driving and racing-related offences between November 6 and 8 were impounded for 14 days.
