Police are thanking those who called in traffic complaints about dangerous drivers.

Grey Bruce OPP are thanking drivers who called in traffic complaints about careless and dangerous drivers.

OPP say over the Canada Day long weekend officers charged 59 drivers with speeding on Highway 6 on the Peninsula.

Eight more drivers were charged with stunt driving, which is 50 kilometres per hour  or more over the posted speed limit.

Police say the speeds of the offenders ranged from 143 km/h to 171 km/h in a posted 80 km/h speed limit zone.

The driver's licences and vehicles were taken from them for 7 days and they received a court date to answer to the charge.

Grey Bruce OPP say they will continue to enforce the traffic laws in an effort to keeping Highway 6 safe.

They say the ongoing disregard for the speed limit by some drivers is unacceptable and they have zero tolerance for those types of drivers.

Police say they will charge them accordingly, and when applicable, remove them and their vehicles from the road.
