At approximately 6:30 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 20, a Nottawasaga OPP officer was performing traffic enforcement duties in the Village of Angus, near Barrie. 

The officer caught an eastbound vehicle overtaking other eastbound vehicles where the four lanes begin to reduce to two lanes of traffic. The area is a 60 km/h zone.

Radar showed the vehicle was travelling at 130 km/h.

The vehicle was stopped and the driver, a 20-year-old man from North Bay, was charged with "stunt, race a motor vehicle."

His driving license has been suspended for seven days and his motor vehicle seized for seven days. 

He will make a court appearance in Barrie on Jan. 9.
