Traffic Infractions Lead To Further Charges

South Simcoe Police Pull Two Separate Vehicles Over, End up Handing Out more than Speeding tickets

A speeding infraction lead to further charges for a Mississauga man. South Simcoe Police say they clocked a vehicle hitting speeds of 150km an hour on the 400 through Innisfil Saturday afternoon, and followed it to the 4th line of Innisfil. During the traffic stop, police claim to have smelled the tell-tale scent of marijuana. The driver was charged with Speeding and Pot Possession.

Meanwhile, a Thornbury man’s suspended licence will stay that way a little longer, after police pulled him over Sunday afternoon. Officers claim the vehicle ran a red light at Melbourne Dr. and Holland St. in Bradford, and discovered after speaking to the driver that his G2 licence had been suspended in 2011 over unpaid fines. He has a few more fines to pay now, having been charged at the roadside.
