Demonstrations shut down major roads in Mississauga.

Peel Regional Police are urging residents to slow down on the roads following three separate incidents on the same day, where drivers were caught speeding in Brampton.

On Sunday (Apr. 16) police reported via tweet three different cases where Brampton men were caught stunt driving.

Police say they observed a 35-year-old man driving 120 km/h in a 70 km/h zone on Mississauga Rd/Bovaird Dr. W.


A second instance involved a 27-year-old Brampton man travelling at 106 km/h where the maximum limit was listed as 60 km/h along Countryside Dr/Dixie Rd.


Officers spotted a third driver —a 23-year-old man (also from Brampton) who was racing at 111 km/h in a 70 km/h zone near Hwy 50/Clarkway Dr.

Police say all three drivers have been charged. Their licenses have been suspended for 30 days and vehicles will be impounded for 14 days.

This isn’t anything out of the ordinary as yesterday, (Apr. 15) an 18-year-old teen was stopped for going 122 km/h  in a 70 km/h zone near Mississauga Rd/Williams Pkwy in Brampton. He faced the same fate and had his licensed revoked for 30 days and car impounded for 14 days.

With the weather improving it seems more drivers are experiencing the rush for speeding and it’s not just limited to the region of Brampton as motorists were also caught stunt driving in Mississauga.

This past weekend there were three occurrences of dangerous driving on Tomken Rd/Britannia Rd in Mississauga.

It’s no surprise that there appears to be a stunt driving crisis in the Peel Region.

In fact last week during the Easter long weekend, police took 10 vehicles off the road and laid more than 60 charges targeting stunt driving in Mississauga and Brampton

“Stunt driving has no place on our roadways and will not be tolerated,” police noted in a press release.

“The Peel Regional Police and the Safer Roads Team remain steadfast in their efforts to target this wanton disregard for public safety and bring those drivers to justice.”

The penalties for stunt driving include the possibility of arrest and a mandatory court date with a minimum fine of $2,000 to $10,000. In addition, drivers can lose their license for 30 days, and their vehicle can be impounded for 14 days, regardless of who the registered owner is.

Upon conviction, drivers face further penalties, including a one to three year driver’s license suspension, six demerit points, mandatory driver improvement courses, and up to six months in jail.
