HALDIMAND COUNTY – The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Haldimand County Detachment has charged a motorist with stunt driving over the weekend in Haldimand County.
On Monday, October 11, 2021, at 12:10 p.m., OPP stopped a vehicle on Argyle Street North in Caledonia that was travelling more than 40 km/hour above the posted 50 km/hour speed limit.
Police have charged Joshua SHOLER 26-years-old of Caledonia, with Stunt Driving – 40km/h or more over the posted speed limit, contrary to Section 172(1) of the Highway Traffic Act. The driver has a G2 driver’s licence.
“Too many times officers respond to motor vehicle collisions that involve either seriously injured or even deceased occupants. Although there are several possible causes for these collisions, speed is often one of the factors. It is better to arrive late than never arrive at all,” said OPP Constable Mary Gagliardi.
The accused was issued a provincial summons to attend court, along with a 30-day driver’s licence suspension. The involved vehicle was towed and will be impounded for 14 days.
The individual is to appear at the Provincial Offences Court in Cayuga at a later date to answer the charges.
