What appeared to be a regular traffic stop two years ago has led to $6,500 in fines for an Oakville driver.
The incident happened back in March of 2020 when Halton Regional Police pulled over the man on Speers Rd.
The 33-year-old driver was initially pulled over on suspicion of talking on his cellphone while driving.
During the stop, the officer discovered the man had a suspended license and was driving without insurance.
In court recently, the driver was convicted of driving while under suspension, driving with no insurance and driving while holding a cellphone.
He was fined $5,000 for operating a motor vehicle with no insurance, $1,000 for driving under suspension and received a $500 find for talking on his cellphone.
The man will also be required to cover court costs and a victims of crime surcharge.
