A Brampton driver’s ride has been impounded for two weeks by the Caledon OPP after allegedly going more than twice the speed limit in a 50 km/h zone.

On Monday around 12:30 p.m., an officer from the Caledon Ontario Provincial Police was watching for speeders near Kennedy Rd. and Snellview Blvd. after police said they received complaints about vehicles speeding in the area.

The officer reportedly witnessed a vehicle going 110 km/h in a 50 km/h zone.

The 33-year-old driver from Brampton has been charged with stunt driving and was slapped with an immediate 30-day license suspension and the vehicle was impounded for 14 days.

Just last week, the Caledon OPP pulled over two teen motorists driving side-by-side headed northbound on Coleraine Dr. just north of Mayfield Rd.

Police said the drivers were moving “at extremely high rates of speed,” and officers pulled over the speedsters before they could enter the round-about at Emil Kolb Pkwy.

The teens were reportedly both driving in their parent’s vehicles when they were pulled over.

Police charged the pair with racing a motor vehicle, which came with a 14-day vehicle impoundment and a 30-day driver’s license suspension.

The late night drag race was just the start of a busy weekend for speed demons on Caledon roads, as about half an hour later police say they stopped a driver going 160 km/h in an 80 km/h zone on Dixie Rd. near Old School Rd.

The OPP charged a 28-year-old driver from Tottenham with stunt driving in that incident.

And on Saturday, an officer patrolling Hwy 10 in Caledon Village reportedly stopped a vehicle going 104 km/h in a 60km/h speed zone just after 7:00 p.m.

Police say a 23-year-old driver from Brampton was also charged with stunt driving in that incident.

The Caledon OPP said officers are committed to traffic safety and are conducting traffic enforcement activities in areas of across the community.
