Police say a 33 year old St.Catharines man has been charged with three very large traffic offences in a two week time frame.  On March 17th, 2016, the male driver was charged with Careless Driving as a result of a motor vehicle collision that occurred at the intersection of Martindale Road and Erion Road in the City of St.Catharines.

On March 30th, 2016 at 9:30am, a traffic stop was conducted on the same male driver after being caught going 99 km/hr in a posted 50 km/hr zone on Niagara Street just north of Linwell road in St.Catharines.  He was subsequently issued a provincial offence notice reflecting the excessive speed of 49 km/hr over the posted speed limit. 

The following day, on March 31st, 2016 at 11:08am, the same officer was conducting stationary radar enforcement on Dieppe road at Neilson Avenue in St.Catharines and performed another traffic stop on the same male driver.  This time his speed was registered at 109km/hr in a posted 50km/hr zone.   His licence was immediately suspended for 7 days and his vehicle was impounded for 7 days.  He was issued two court summons for speeding and stunting (racing a motor vehicle) and will be appearing in Provincial Offences Court to answer all of his charges.

Speed remains one of the leading causes of motor vehicle fatality.  Excessive speeds pose an extreme danger to all motorists.  Niagara Regional Police want to remind the public to drive in a responsible manner to ensure that everyone arrives home safely.
