Ontario’s new street racing law has finally proved its worth, as an OPP officer has been charged for driving his cruiser more than 50 km/h over the limit.
Lloyd Tapp, 43, was clocked on Hwy 115 south of Peterborough on March 25. Yes, it’s old news, but our last item on street racing failed to elicit much reader response, so we’re giving you another chance.
Tapp was charged and will appear in court in June. Meanwhile, he’s been stuck behind a desk at the Peterborough County detachment.
Police forces across Ontario have kicked off a campaign called Project Erase to get rid of street racing.
Tapp could be tapped out soon – maximum fine for his alleged behaviour is $10,000.
