Police north of Markham have temporarily taken three Brampton drivers off the road for “excessive speed.”
Through January, the Grey Bruce OPP says 10 drivers were taken off the road for stunting charges, three of which were from Brampton.
Police say the first of three stunting incidents happened on Jan. 2 when police saw a Brampton driver going nearly 150 km/h on Berford Street in South Bruce Peninsula, some 230 kilometres from Markham.
Police say the 21-year-old from Brampton was going 146 km/h in an 80 km/h zone.
Just two days later, police again say they spotted a second 21-year-old from Brampton travelling at 142 km/h in the same area.
Then on Jan. 11, the OPP says police stopped a 43-year-old Brampton driver for going nearly double the limit in a 50 km/h community zone.
The OPP say all three drivers were hit with a stunting charge and have had their vehicle impounded for 14 days, and a temporary licence suspension for 30 days.
The OPP is reminding drivers across Ontario that anyone who witnesses unsafe driving should call the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 when safe to do so, or call 911 in an emergency.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
