The Ottawa Police Service (OPS) laid just over 15 stunt driving charges over the long weekend, which included one driver going 144 km/h on Stranherd Road. 

As part of the annual  'Project NoiseMaker' initiative, OPS officers conducted enforcement blitzes over the long weekend in Barrhaven, Riverside South, Kanata, Orléans and on Heron Road. 

Sixteen stunt driving charges were laid, while 40 speeding tickets were issued and 40 provincial offences were handed out. Three drivers with suspended licences were also charged.

This year, police say they're implementing a new approach towards stunt driving, called 'The Hear it. See it. Report it' initiative. This will give residents a new option to help police combat stunt driving, noise making and speeding in neighbourhoods. The information will be used by the OPS to follow up with drivers who may disregard posted speed limits.
