August did not get off to a good start for a pair of motorists on Highway 89 in the area of the 8th Line in Essa Township.
Nottawasaga OPP was conducting traffic enforcement on Saturday afternoon and nabbed two drivers they said were both clocked at 170 km/hr in a posted 80-zone.
Just a fluke the drivers were nabbed travelling together and at the same speed limit because police said the two did not know each other. Both vehicles were impounded for seven days.
A 36 year old Alliston man was charged with stunt driving. The other motorist, a 37 year old from Thornhill, is in a deeper legal hole, as he was also charged with failure to surrender a driver’s licence, fail to surrender a permit for the vehicle and no proof of insurance.
