On March 24, 2019, at approximately 6:47 p.m., officers were conducting traffic enforcement with a speed timing device on Main Street when they pulled over and charged two drivers for a number of street racing related offences.

Police were monitoring traffic on Main Street near South Railway Avenue when they observed a grey Honda Civic and a blue Honda Accord traveling side by side southbound on Main Street at a high rate of speed. Police were able to obtain a speed reading for one of the vehicles and found it to be driving 124 km/h in the 50 km/h zone. This was consistent with the officer’s visual estimation of the speed traveled by both vehicles.

Police pulled over both vehicles on Mountain Avenue near Main Street.

The 18-year-old male driver of the Honda Accord was charged with Racing with Another Motor Vehicle and Drive Carelessly.

The 19-year-old male driver of the Honda Civic was charged with Racing with Another Motor Vehicle, Drive Carelessly, and Speeding by driving 124 km/h in a 50 km/h zone.
