Police are again urging drivers to slow down on Ontario roads after a man from Brampton was taken off the road for stunting.

The OPP says officers from the Caledon detachment say officers stopped a 22-year-old driver on Mt. Wolfe Road, according to a post on social media on Wednesday.

The 22-year-old man from Brampton was charged with stunt driving and the vehicle was impounded for 14 days.

A video of the incident shared by police shows a white Honda being hauled away by a tow truck, and police had a message for would-be speeders.

“If you can’t bear to see your beloved car go away for 14 days, there’s a simple solution – slow down,” police said.

And while driving too fast can pose a danger on the roads, so can going too slow as one Brampton driver found out earlier this week.

Police say a G1 driver was stopped in Caledon for driving under the speed limit, with another novice driver riding in the car who was “teaching” them how to drive.

The driver was charged with multiple offences under the Highway Traffic Act according to police, including one count of unnecessary slow driving. The charge comes with a fine between $150 and $1,000, as well as two demerit points.
