Traffic - Four Exotic Cars Seized in Niagara-on-the-Lake for Stunting

Posted on Wednesday July 11, 2018
On Wednesday, July 11, 2018, at 11:44 a.m., police officers from the Niagara Regional Police Service stopped six exotic cars participating in a 5-hour tour of the Niagara Region from Stoney Creek to Niagara Falls.   This enforcement action was a part of an ongoing effort to reduce dangerous driving in the region after numerous complaints were received from concerned residents.
 
The six cars are owned by Ultimate Exotics, which is based out of Stoney Creek and are operated by customers who wish to take them out on the 5-hour VIP tour.  Every driver has the opportunity to drive each of the exotic cars as they switch at certain points along the tour. 
 
Police officers from the Traffic Enforcement Unit and Uniform Patrol positioned themselves along the route in Niagara-on-the-Lake anticipating their arrival.  When several speeds were obtained of over 50 km/h over the posted speed limit, the group of vehicles was stopped, which included the tour operator who was leading the group.  As a result, all six drivers were charged with various offences, including four of them who had their licences suspended and vehicles towed and seized for seven days.
 
The following is a list of the charges.
 
1. A 37 year-old male from Hamilton was driving a grey 2010 Porsche Cayenne and faces 4 Highway Traffic Act charges, including speeding (124 km/h in a 70 km/h zone), and stunting. 
2. A 58 year-old male from Burlington was driving an orange 2016 Lamborghini and faces one charge of speeding (117 km/h in a 70 km/h zone) under the Highway Traffic Act.
3. A 25 year-old male from Toronto was driving a red 2014 McLaren and faces two Highway Traffic Act charges, including speeding (137 km/h in a 70 km/h zone), and stunting.
4. A 27 year-old female from Oakville was driving a blue 2016 Corvette and faces one charge of careless driving under the Highway Traffic Act.
5. A 48 year-old male from Richmond Hill was driving a white 2016 Mercedes AMG GT R and faces two Highway Traffic Act charges, including speeding (148 km/h in a 70 km/h zone), and stunting.
6. A 57 year-old female from Quebec was driving a white 2016 Nissan GT-R and faces 3 Highway Traffic Act charges, including speeding (148 km/h in a 70 km/h zone) and stunting.
 
The Niagara Regional Police take speeding and aggressive driving very seriously as it is considered one of the fatal four reasons that contributes to fatalities on our roadways, and will continue to take enforcement action on those who show disregard.
