A traffic stop was conducted, and the 25-year-old driver from Orangeville was charged with the following offences:

  • Drive motor vehicle - perform stunt excessive speed
  • Speeding 50+ km/h over posted limit

The driver faces a provincial court date to answer to the charge, as well as a 30-day licence suspension and a 14-day motor vehicle impoundment.

 


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.
