On the 8th of April, 2015, at approximately 4:15pm, officers working out of the Oakville Community Mobilization Bureau were engaged in proactive patrol in the area of Third Line and Merchants Gate in the Town of Oakville.

Officers observed a motor vehicle operating without a muffler. While attempting to catch up to the vehicle, the officers saw the vehicle fail to stop at a stop sign and continue southbound on Heritage Way, accelerating to a speed of 95km/h as it entered the 40 km/h zone.

This area of Glen Abbey roadway, was in a residential neighbourhood, with two elementary schools (Heritage Glen Public School and St. Bernadette Catholic Elementary School) situated in the vicinity. The vehicle was further observed to be squealing its tires and swerving on the roadway. The officers conducted a traffic stop and subsequently arrested the driver for stunt driving.

The 16-year-old, G2 Class licence driver, was released on a Provincial Offences Summons with the following charges:

  • No Muffler
  • Careless Driving
  • Drive Motor Vehicle – perform stunt (speeding by 50 or more km/h)
  • Speeding – 95km/h in a posted 40km/h zone.

Pursuant to Provincial Stunt Driving legislation, the defendant had his licence suspend for a period of 7 days, and the vehicle which he was operating was towed and impounded for a period of 7 days.

A reminder for all motorists that driving is a privilege and it should be one taken seriously. Road safety is a priority for our community just as it is for the Halton Regional Police, and in working together, through education and enforcement, we can make our roads as safe as possible.

Anyone with information on this or any other crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222-8477 (TIPS) or through the web at www.haltoncrimestoppers.com or by texting “Tip201” with your message to 274637 (crimes).

    16 years old & G2 Suspend his licence until he’s 25 years of age maybe he’ll of grown up by then,hit him with as many high rate fines as they can, and make him do community service, this sort of thing is happening all too often and it has to stop when it says do 40 in a school zone I do 30 that is most certainly not a place for that kind of thing, I further think his insurance rates should be so high that he’ll never be able to afford it although I’m sure you’ll be able to count on that. GOOD JOB OFFICERS !!!

      Hey Stunter ur young still. Take from this situation and slow it down in the important areas. Take it to the track. Ur about an hour away from Cayuga Motorsport where there’s a track and drag strip and u can have “fun” all day with no worries. Don’t worry about the comment hear dude worry about learning not to make the same mistake twice 🙂 Keep ur head up brother and get ur car back. Take care.
