This gentleman was caught stunt driving – on the sidewalk

They say practice makes perfect. Maybe this motorcycle driver (above) felt that the sidewalks of Port Perry in the Township of Scugog were safer to practice for dirt biking or motocross.

But officers from the North Division of Durham Regional Police Service (DRPS) played spoilsports and stopped this young driver in his tracks – so to speak.

“This rider was charged with stunt driving – riding on a sidewalk in Port Perry,” said the police.

They said he also had no plates, no insurance and more.

The bike was impounded for 14 days, and the driver’s licence was suspended for 30 days, police said.

No way to start long weekend

In the morning, North Division officers said it was not a good way to start the long weekend for the driver below, who was charged with stunt – excessively speeding (52 kmh above the speed limit) in Utica in Scugog.

The violation drew a 30-day licence suspension and a 14-day vehicle impound.

“Please pay attention to and obey the speed limit,” police said.
