The continuous effort by Halton Regional Police to crack down on noisy vehicles has led to another driver getting pulled over.

Police say they stopped a car last night (July 18) on Prospect St. near Brant St. around 10 p.m. because it was making excessive noise.

The police vehicle was unmarked and looked like a regular pickup truck.

After checking out the vehicle, the driver was ticketed for a number of offenses.

These offenses include improper muffler, making excessive noise, having a defective horn, having no front license plate, and having an expired license plate.

The total in fines amounted to $660.

Police typically do not release the name of those ticketed under the Highway Traffic Act.
