High miler and drunk driver among the traffic charges laid in South Simcoe Police stomping grounds over the weekend

Police say they had to impound a vehicle which belonged to the relative of the driver

It appears some motorists were not on their best behaviour when the weekend rolled around.

A South Simcoe Police officer in a marked cruiser was travelling along Yonge St. in Innisfil just before 9:30 p.m. Friday and say they spied a parked vehicle pull out from the shoulder in front of the cruiser and speed off. The vehicle was clocked at 120km/h in an 80 zone and police add it was being driven erratically. The vehicle was stopped and the driver, a 42-year-old man from Innisfil, was arrested and charged.

Approximately two hours later, an officer spotted a vehicle travelling at a high rate of speed; the radar gun read 109km/h in a 50 zone along Bridge St. in Bradford. The man behind the wheel, a 34-year-old from Holland Landing, was hit with stunt driving and driving under suspension charges.

On Saturday, around 11 p.m., South Simcoe Police were called about a vehicle being driving erratically as it exited the 400 at Highway 88. Officers located the suspect vehicle at a nearby gas station and spoke with the driver. As a result, a 56-year-old Toronto man is charged with driving while prohibited. The vehicle, which belonged to a relative, was impounded for 45 days.
