Yet another Ontario driver has been pulled off the road after police say they were clocked going nearly double the limit in a 50 km/h zone.

The traffic stop happened on Tuesday when the OPP says officers pulled over a speeding SUV in Caledon.

Police say the driver was travelling at 94 km/h in a 50 km/h zone, and while investigating the driver found a seatbelt not properly being worn. The driver also failed to surrender an insurance card, police said.

The incident led police to lay multiple charges against the driver including a stunting charge. The driver was also hit with a 30-day licence suspension and a 14-day vehicle impound.

The OPP is cracking down on speeders and unsafe driving on roads in Brampton, Mississauga and Caledon with safety blitzes, including one last week that netted over 130 charges and 8 commercial trucks being taken off the road.

With more drivers hitting the road police say motorists are encouraged to contact the OPP to report unsafe vehicles and unsafe driving behaviours by calling 911 or *OPP (*677) to report unsafe incidents.
