A driver from Caledon is becoming a familiar face for police who say the motorist was stopped twice in less than a week for alleged stunting and driving with a suspended licence.

The first incident happened on Feb. 5 when the OPP says officers in Caledon stopped a vehicle on Emil Kolb Parkway near Bolton. Police say the driver was stopped for stunt driving, a charge that comes with a license suspension and vehicle impound.

A photo shared by the OPP on social media shows a police radar gun with the driver of a truck clocked at 76/km/h.

But just five days later police say they again stopped the same driver, this time charging the individual with driving while under suspension. The identity of the driver has not been disclosed by police.

The repeated stops have police reminding drivers that the OPP is committed to road safety and urges all motorists to do the same.

The OPP is running RIDE (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) checkstops across the province, including one in Caledon on Friday where two allegedly impaired drivers were each charged with failure or refusal to comply with demand.
