Haldimand OPP has charged three drivers with stunt driving within a span of just over two hours on Highway 6 in Caledonia.
On Monday at 8:10 p.m. OPP were patrolling Highway 6 in Caledonia when an officer noticed a vehicle travelling more than 85 km/hour above the posted 80 km/hour speed limit.
An hour later they saw another vehicle clocked on radar at over 60 km/hour above the posted 80 km/hour speed limit.
And 40 minutes later, OPP stopped another vehicle for speeding more than 55 km/hour above the posted 80 km/hour speed limit.
All three, who have not been named, had their driver’s licences automatically suspended for seven days and their vehicles towed from the scene and impounded for seven days.
All are to appear at the Ontario Provincial Offences Court in Cayuga at a later date.
“These reckless driving behaviours put lives in danger and are simply not worth the risk and consequences. Collisions at these speeds quite often result in serious injuries or fatalities,” said Constable Rod LeClair, Media Relations Officer, Haldimand County OPP.
Much less severe consequences are the fines imposed by the courts, the impound fees and the increased insurance rates. One has to ask themselves, is it worth it?”
