The Grey Bruce Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have charged an individual with stunt driving in the Municipality of Grey Highlands.

On February 14, 2023, at 10:14 pm, a Grey Bruce OPP officer was conducting speed enforcement on Highway 10 in the Municipality of Grey Highlands.

The officer observed a motor vehicle to be travelling at over 165 km/h in a posted 80 km/h zone, and conducted a traffic stop on it.

As a result, the 22-year-old accused from Markdale is charged with Drive motor vehicle - perform stunt - excessive speed. The accused also received a 14-day motor vehicle impoundment, a 30-day licence suspension, and a provincial court date to answer to the charge.

Speeding continues to be one of the leading contributing factors to motor vehicle collisions. The Grey Bruce OPP are reminding motorists to slow down, pay attention to the posted speed limit, drive according to the road and weather conditions, and plan ahead for delays.

 


At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful and factual, up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
