Teen G2 Driver Facing Stunt Driving Charges In Peterborough

PETERBOROUGH-Peter borough Police say an 18-year-old G2 driver is facing a stunt driving charge after a traffic stop Thursday afternoon.

At approximately 12:00pm on February 8, 2024, an officer on traffic patrol in the area of Hilliard Street and Marina Boulevard reportedly recorded a vehicle going 97km/hr in a posted 40km/hr Community Safety Zone.

As a result, an 18-year-old Peterborough male was charged with stunt driving, issued a 30-day license suspension and a 14-day vehicle impoundment.

Officers are reminding residents that Hilliard Street and several other streets facing schools within the City of Peterborough have now been designated as Community Safety Zones.

A Community Safety Zone is designated for a lower speed limit and means an increase any fines for related offences such as speeding. For example, driving 20km/hr over the posted limit would cost a driver $180 instead of $95
