Drivers Reminded of Zero Tolerance Approach for Stunt Driving Related Offences
Spring is around the corner and Hamilton Police are reminding drivers that Stunt Driving, Aggressive Driving and Speeding will not be tolerated. Although these infractions occur all year round, as the warm weather approaches, there is usually an increase as violators see clear roads as an opportunity to push the limits.
On Sunday, March 17, 2019, shortly before noon, Hamilton Police conducted speed enforcement in the area of Jerseyville Road West and Alberton Road. At that time a black Ford Focus was observed operating at a high rate of speed eastbound on Jerseyville. An investigation into its speed determined the vehicle was travelling 124km/hr in a posted 60 km/hr zone.
A traffic stop was conducted and the driver, a 21-year-old Brantford man was arrested for Stunt Driving. He was released and is scheduled to appear in court on Monday, April 15, 2019, to answer to several Highway Traffic Act infractions.
The Ford Focus has been impounded for seven days.
Hamilton Police are reminding drivers that Stunt Driving, Aggressive Driving and Speeding will not be tolerated. A zero tolerance approach will be taken by police as the safety of everyone is paramount.
