Stunt Driving Charges Laid

Officers of the Traffic Management once again targeted school zones and conducted speed measuring exercises on Valley View Road in Val Caron.  During a four hour period approximately 32 people were charged with speeding in the school zones.

During the lunch hour when children were outside two individuals were stopped and charged with Stunt driving in that one was clocked at 54 km/h over the speed limit (94 km/h in a posted 40 km/h zone) and another was charged with 52 km/h over the speed limit (92 km/h in a posted 40 km/h zone).  Both of these individuals received seven day suspensions of their licences and their vehicles were impounded for seven days.  All costs of storage are assessed against those drivers.

Officers will continue to conduct strict enforcement over the long weekend targeting aggressive drivers and drivers that drink and drive.  Operation Impact has begun and will continue throughout the weekend.
