Stunting and speeding charges seem all too common on Ontario roads these days, but police in Caledon have just charged a driver after they were caught driving too slow.

The incident happened on Tuesday on Highway 10 near the Town of Caledon, according to the OPP. Police say a G1 driver was stopped after officers spotted them driving under the speed limit, and failing to keep to the right shoulder.

Police say the G1 driver had another novice driver riding in the car who was “teaching” them how to drive.

The driver has been charged with multiple offences under the Highway Traffic Act according to police, including one count of unnecessary slow driving. The charge comes with a fine between $150 and $1,000, as well as two demerit points.

Police have not disclosed the identity or any additional details about the driver.
