For one driver in Oakville, being charged once Tuesday afternoon (June 7) wasn’t enough.

A driver in white Mercedes was pulled over by Halton Regional Police Constable Marc Taraso not just once, but twice within half an hour.

Police pulled the driver over at 12:31 p.m. in the area of Dundas St./Bronte St. and charged him for being unlicensed. The vehicle was moved to a parking lot to allow the driver to straighten out his license issues.

Just 21 minutes later, the same white Mercedes was seen in the area of Dundas St./Third Line and was once again stopped by Cst. Taraso.

He was still unlicensed and was charged once again.

“Now I get to play babysitter until this is sorted,” said Cst. Taraso on Twitter with a picture of the pulled over car.
