About that new insurance policy

The officer activated the lidar unit and determined the speed of the vehicle to be 153 km/hr in a posted 80 km/hr zone. As a result, an 18-year-old Brampton man has been charged with Race a Motor Vehicle – Excessive Speed, Class G1 Licence Holder – Unaccompanied by Qualified Driver, Class G1 Licence Holder – Carry Front-Seat Passenger.

The driver received a seven-day licence suspension and his motor vehicle was seized for a period of seven days as a result of the stunt driving charge.

Booze behind the wheel

Rash of thefts from cars

On Friday, July 13 Caledon OPP responded to two incidents of thefts from motor vehicles overnight. One incident occurred on Lansbridge Street and another on Albiwoods Trail.

Two days later, Caledon OPP responded to 5 incidents of theft from motor vehicles on Norton Boulevard, Downey Crescent, and Ellwood Drive East.

In these incidents, victims lost: wallets, cash, bank cards, identification, and other valuable items.

Caledon OPP would like to remind the public that when it comes to thefts from motor vehicles, this can be a crime of opportunity for criminals. A crime of opportunity is an act “that is committed without planning when the perpetrator sees that he/she has the chance to commit the act at that moment and seizes it.”

With that being said, we ask that you take the following precautions to help prevent you from becoming a target:

• Always roll up your vehicle’s windows & lock the doors

• Never leave valuable items or merchandise in plain view, use your trunk instead or better yet remove all valuable items from your vehicle

• If you have a garage, use it and lock both your vehicle and the garage

• Never leave your vehicle keys in plain view or in an easily accessible area

• Do not leave your vehicle registration certificate & proof of insurance in your vehicle

• Always park your vehicle in a well-lit area
