OTTAWA -- Four motorists are facing stunt driving charges after being stopped for speeding on Bronson Avenue, including one motorist facing a stunt driving charge for the second time in 10 months.
On Monday, Ottawa police say a motorist was stopped going 123 kilometres an hour on Bronson in a 60 kilometre an hour zone.
On Twitter, the Ottawa Police Service Traffic Unit said the same driver was charged for going 165 km/h in a 100 km/h zone on Highway 174 last July.
