A tweet, posted by OPP Sunday morning, says members of the Highway Enforcement Team observed the vehicles racing, as well as “driving on the shoulder, passing dangerously and making unsafe lane changes.”

Provincial police say the charges include a seven-day licence suspension and the vehicles were impounded for 14 days.
