Mo­tor­cy­clists charged with rac­ing

The Observer (Sarnia) - - NEWS -

Two mo­tor­cy­clists have lost their bikes and their driver’s li­cences for seven days and face charges of rac­ing as de­scribed by the On­tario Traf­fic Act. Lambton OPP say a 35-year-old Sar­nia man and a 26-year-old man were rac­ing their mo­tor­cy­cles in the area of High­way 40 and LaSalle Line on the evening of Sept. 26. OPP of­fi­cers say they re­ceived sev­eral com­plaints about the in­ci­dent, but an of­fi­cer on gen­eral patrol also saw the mo­tor­cy­clists, fol­low­ing the two bikers as they “rapidly sped away.” Us­ing his mov­ing radar, OPP say the of­fi­cer mea­sured the mo­tor­cy­cles’ speed at greater than 200 kilo­me­tres per hour, in an 80-kilo­me­tre-per-hour zone. The mo­tor­cy­clists were fol­lowed at a dis­tance un­til they were caught up in traf­fic. That’s when they were charged and the keys to their bikes were re­moved “to pre­vent con­tin­u­a­tion of the of­fence and to de­ter es­cape.” The two were charged with rac­ing and are to ap­pear in Sar­nia traf­fic court on Dec. 8.
