Driver charged in Oakville as police crack down on stunt driving during COVID-19
Police continue to crack down on stunt driving on the open roads.
With the COVID-19 isolation measures in place, there’s more room on the streets—and those looking to take advantage of the extra space.
One day after a 24-year-old driver was pulled over by Ontario Provincial Police for stunt driving in Burlington, a driver was stopped in Oakville for a similar infraction.
Halton Regional Police tweeted a photo of an officer’s radar gun reading 120 km/h.
“Driver stopped in the area of Dundas Street and Ninth Line in Oakville,” wrote Halton police on a tweet.
“Driver charged with stunt driving for speeding 120 km/h in a 70 zone. Car impounded. Empty roads does not give you the green light to speed.”
