A man and woman from St. Catharines have been charged after Hamilton police caught two drivers going twice the speed limit in separate incidents over the weekend.

Shortly after 11:30 a.m. Saturday, police were conducting speed enforcement on Nikola Tesla Blvd. near Industrial Dr.

The officers clocked a Volkswagen Jetta going 112 km/h in a posted 60 km/h zone.

Police pulled the vehicle over and charged an 18-year-old man with stunt driving and speeding.

The next morning, police caught a Hyundai Elantra going roughly twice the speed limit on the same road.

A 27-year-old woman was charged with speeding and stunt driving.

Both drivers had their licences suspended and vehicles impounded for seven days.

They are scheduled to appear in court in late November.

If found guilty in court, the penalties for stunt driving could include a fine between $2,000 – $10,000, up to six months in jail and a two-year licence suspension.
