In the early morning hours of Thursday April 3rd, 2014, the Halton Regional Police received a number of calls regarding a group of vehicles travelling at a high rate of speed on Trafalgar Road in the Town of Oakville, and that the vehicles appeared to be racing.

Officers set up a speed measuring device in the area of Trafalgar Rd and McCraney St and a short time later, a group of nine vehicles were spotted by officers driving southbound on Trafalgar Road in a tight pack at speeds ranging from 120 to 127kms/hr in a posted 60 km/hr zone.

The police were successful in stopping all nine vehicles on Trafalgar Rd. and the drivers were charged with Race a Motor Vehicle S. 172(1) of the Highway Traffic Act and released on a summons with a court date of May 13, 2014 in Burlington.

The vehicles were new vehicles being moved to the Ford plant in Oakville from a storage lot in Milton. The drivers are not employees of Ford of Canada, but are employees of a third-party company hired by the automaker to shuttle vehicles.
