Hundreds of drivers in Mississauga stopped in suspected street racing crack down

Cops stopped hundreds of cars in a Mississauga shopping mall parking lot and issued dozens of tickets Friday night as part of a crackdown on large gatherings believed to be tied to street racing.

Peel Regional Police say the blitz was conducted in the area of the Heartland Town Centre at Mavis and Britannia Rds.

Officers stopped 370 vehicles, issued 112 bylaw tickets and 67 Highway Traffic Act tickets, and laid two criminal charges.

“This came from our Road Safety Services,” Const. Danny Marttini said Saturday. “They had a complaint on this (gathering) and would have attended.”

“These gatherings meet and then they go race, which is incredibly dangerous,” she added.
