A young driver from Sudbury has been charged with stunt driving, said provincial police.

Officers conducting traffic enforcement on Highway 69 on May 21 pulled over the 18-year-old driver after being clocked driving 148 kilometres an hour in a posted 90-km/h zone.

The driver was issued a seven-day driver's licence suspension and vehicle impounded for the same period.

The accused was released on Provincial Summons and is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice on Oct. 19 in Sudbury.

The next day, Greater Sudbury Police tweeted May 22 that another motorist is charged after being caught driving 129 kilometres an hour in a posted 60km/h zone, resulting in a stunt driving charge and a 7 day impound of the vehicle. 

Police are reminding drivers they will be on the lookout all weekend and hope everyone has a safe long weekend.
