If at first you don’t succeed: Halton Police pulls over same uninsured car twice in 20 minutes

Oakville, Ontario — Next time you think you can get sneaky about your vehicle’s insurance, think again, as a Halton Region police officer was forced to have a car impounded after the driver was pulled over twice within 20 minutes, in Oakville, Ontario on Tuesday.

Const. Marc Taraso of the Halton Police took to twitter on Tuesday morning to warn drivers of the severity of the penalties for driving without insurance.

The officer said he “observed the driver on foot looking around the area, and then immediately returning to their vehicle and proceeding northbound on Winston Churchill,” before stopping them again shortly thereafter.

On just the first charge, the driver was facing a minimum $5,000 fine, however, thanks to their clearly lacking stealth skills, now faces up to $50,000 in additional fines as well as the potential for a one-year license suspension.
