An 18-year-old Bradford man was charged with several offences after South Simcoe Police Service officers responded to community complaints about a noisy exhaust.
One month ago, police contacted a driver and advised him of the community concerns.
On Wednesday, Aug. 26, 2020, further complaints were received. An officer attended the area and observed the vehicle that clearly had a modified exhaust system.
The vehicle was subsequently tracked on radar at 79 km/h in the posted 50 km/h zone. A traffic stop was conducted and the officer observed the driver in possession of cannabis.
Philip Shapiera, 18, of Bradford, was issued three charges and a report notice to attend the Ministry of Transportation for further vehicle testing and examination by ministry officials.
