York police’s road safety bureau said proactive enforcement efforts continue in an effort to put an end to stunt driving.

“Excessive speed has consistently been one of the greatest contributing factors in many fatal collisions that have occurred on York Region roads,” said a York police news release. “Street racers put themselves and unsuspecting road users at risk of death or serious injury when they choose to disobey traffic laws and drive without due care and control and with a disregard for public safety.”
