On Thursday, Nov. 2, 2017 around 3:30 p.m., a South Simcoe Police Service Traffic Unit officer was conducting speed enforcement on the 12th Line, Town of Bradford/West Gwillimbury. He watched a car travelling eastbound at a high rate of speed and activated his radar. The car registered a speed of 111 km/h in a posted 60 km/h zone.

Police stopped the vehicle and while speaking to the driver, he noted a strong smell of alcohol. A roadside screening device test was conducted resulting in a fail. A 42-year-old female from Innisfil was charged with stunt driving and drive over 80 mgs. Her vehicle was towed and impounded for seven days, her driver's licence was suspended for 90 days.

She will appear in court later this month.
