Police have laid dozens of charges after pulling over the same driver three times in two days in Caledon due to safety issues.
Just after 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, the OPP said on Twitter that police had stopped a van in Caledon that was overloaded with passengers.
Police said passengers in the vehicles were riding with seats unsecured and no seatbelts.
But when another van arrived on the scene police found the second vehicle had defective brakes and the driver did not have a proper license.
Then on Wednesday, police said they had again pulled over the first van that was overloaded with passengers, an improperly licensed driver, no seatbelts, no insurance, and other infractions.
In all, police have laid over 25 charges against the driver and are reminding motorists to know the rules of the road or face fines.
“If at 1st you don’t succeed – make sure the 2nd attempt isn’t worse,” police said on Twitter.
Anyone who suspects that someone is driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs, or has concerns about a potentially dangerous driver to call 9-1-1 to report it or provide information anonymously by contacting Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.peelcrimestoppers.ca.
