Two people were charged for stunt driving and speeding in separate incidents in both Bradford and Innisfil on Monday and Sunday, South Simcoe police say.

The previous morning, a 32-year-old man was also charged after an officer stopped him in Innisfil.
The officer was conducting speed enforcement on Yonge Street and observed a vehicle pass two others at a high rate of speed.
The officer reportedly obtained a speed measurement of 133 km/h in a posted 80 km/h zone.
