This specific highway traffic incident didn’t happen in Burlington – but the same kind of driving stupidity happens here as well.

See what the consequences are when someone gets really stupid behind the wheel of a car.

HRPS crestFollowing a complaint of aggressive driving made to the Halton Regional Police “Road Watch” program, Regional Police Officers were tasked with an early morning patrol to try and catch an unknown driver.

The complaints alleged that the driver was routinely operating a black VW Jetta sedan and was driving at speeds in excess of 100km/h, and on one occasion was seen passing up to 15 vehicles.

On February 21st 2019 at approximately 05:30hrs a DRT Officer observed the suspect vehicle passing vehicles in a southbound direction travelling at 132km/h in a 60km/h zone.

The vehicle was stopped and was confirmed as the same vehicle as having been reported in the Road Watch complaint.

The driver was charged with the following offences:

1. Stunt driving
2. Speeding – 132km/h in a 60km/h zone
3. Fail to have insurance card

The drivers licence and vehicle were seized for 7 days. A request for a drivers licence review by the Ministry of Transport was also approved.  Ouch – that will hurt.

The Road Watch on line reporting tool can be accessed here.
