Two drivers are facing ‘Stunt Driving’ charges after being pulled over in separate incidents on the same day, by the OPP’s Traffic Incident Management and Enforcement Team.
Police say on Thursday just before noon, an officer conducting radar patrol in an unmarked cruiser on Highway 69 in Mowat Township was passed by a northbound car that was clocked going over 50km/h over the posted speed limit.
Charged with ‘Race a Motor Vehicle-excessive speed-construction zone workers present’ is 29-year-old Vernon Jarvais of Lindsay.
A 57-year-old man was also pulled over and charged later that same afternoon going northbound on the same stretch of Highway 69 by an officer with the T.I.M.E unit.
Timothy More of Kitchener was also charged with Race a motor vehicle-excessive speed-construction zone workers present.
Both drivers had their licences suspended for seven days and the cars they were driving impounded for seven days and are scheduled to be in Parry Sound court, March 26th.
These were the sixth and seventh stops for ‘Stunt Driving’ offences by the West Parry Sound OPP for 2019.
