A 49 year old male and a 29 year old Female caught racing on Trafalgar Road in Oakville, have been charged with stunt driving.

On March 16, 2016 at approximately 9:10 pm Halton Police observed two vehicles travelling at a high rate of speed on Trafalgar Road north of Dundas Street. It was determined that each vehicle was travelling over 140 km/h in a posted 80 km/h zone.

Both drivers were charged with stunt driving. Their driver’s licences were suspended and their vehicles were impounded for 7 days.

Halton Regional Police Service reminds motorists, the higher the speed, the greater distance to stop. On dry roads, at 140 km/h a vehicle will travel approximately 100 m, opposed to travelling at 80 km/h, on the same road, a vehicle will stop in approximately 30 m. You would need an additional 70 m of road to stop at 140 km.

An essential part of the enforcement job is to save lives and reduce injuries on our roadways. Educating drivers about safe driving habits is a priority.

Anyone aware of a crime or has additional information is asked to call the Halton Regional Police Services at 905-825-4747, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477(TIPS), through the web at www.haltoncrimestoppers.com, or by texting “Tip201” with your message to 274637 (crimes).

    This would all be solved if the government or someone gave us a place to play around toronto. Like open a low price drag racing strip where people pay like 5$ or something to do a run. You would take racers off the street and bring the city more money.

      Why should the government give you a place to play? Talk about a sense of entitlement! Pool resources with like minded people and build your own race track–or visit one of the racing tracks around the GTA.

      Those convicted of stunt racing should see their cars seized and sold, and their driver’s licenses revoked for at least a year. THAT would solve the problem.
