Greater than 300 prices had been issued towards motorists in Ottawa over the weekend in a effort to curb road racing and extreme noise by autos.

Among the many prices laid by Operation #NoiseMaker, a joint enforcement undertaking between the Ottawa Police Service, Ottawa bylaw officers and native OPP, had been 55 cases of extreme noise or improper mufflers, 47 for dashing, 4 circumstances of stunt driving, two drivers with suspended licenses and two with no insurance coverage.

Moreover, three felony prices had been laid: possession of a Schedule 1 substance for the aim of trafficking, distribution of illicit hashish, and possession of property obtained by crime.

“Careless drivers make themselves a simple goal, whereas giving authentic automobile and bike fanatics a foul title,” stated Sgt. Troy Froats.

“We’ll proceed to take a zero-tolerance strategy till they get the message.”
