Road Racers Caught in the Act

Two 18-year-old Hamilton men were charged over the weekend with stunt driving after police observed them racing on Main Street.

On Sunday, April 21, 2019, at approximately 7:00 p.m., police were in the area of Main Street East and King Street East when they heard the sounds of two engines racing. A blue Subura BRZ and black Chev Cobalt were observed travelling a high rate of speed on Main Street. The vehicles passed the officer and continued along Main Street. Several blocks later police were able to safely stop both vehicles. Through investigation, it was determined the vehicles were in fact racing.

Both drivers have been issued a Provincial Court Summons for "Race a Motor Vehicle" under the Ontario Highway Traffic Act. They are scheduled to appear in court on Monday, May 13, 2019. Their licence has been suspended for seven days and their vehicles impounded for the same period.

The Cobalt driver was also charged with stunt driving in 2018.
