Police say they’ve taken a pair of speedsters off the road after getting caught driving over 130 km/h down Brampton streets.

In a release on Friday (March 24), Peel Regional Police said they pulled over a driver at Queen St. and Goreway Dr. in Brampton. Police say the 22-year-old driver was clocked going over 140 km/h in an 80 km/h zone.

On the other side of the city, police say another driver, also a 22-year-old, was pulled over at Mississauga Rd. and Williams Pkwy. for going some 130 km/h in a 70 km/h zone.

Police say the vehicles involved in both incidents were impounded for 14 days and the 22-year-old drivers were both hit with 30-day license suspensions.

Peel Regional Police say officers are cracking down on speeders and dangerous driving, and officers are reminding motorists to follow the rules of the road to help keep streets safe.
