On March 9, 2016 at 1 a.m., the Guelph Police observed a black Lexus and a white BMW turn north off Stone Road onto the Hanlon Parkway and accelerate to a very high rate of speed, driving side by side.

Police lost sight of the vehicles as they crossed over College Avenue but located them as they made a U-turn at Woodlawn Road West and headed south on the Hanlon Parkway. 

The black Lexus began fishtailing before straightening itself out as both vehicles accelerated quickly.

Police were able to conduct a traffic stop on both vehicles in the southbound lanes of the Hanlon Parkway just south of the Wellington Street overpass. 

The Lexus was being driven by a 20-year-old male from Stouffville and was carrying three passengers. 

The BMW was being driven by a 21-year-old male from Burlington and was carrying four passengers. 

Both drivers were charged under the Highway Traffic act for Stunt Driving-Racing.

Their drivers’ licences were seized for 7 days and the motor vehicles were impounded for 7 days.
