That paticular stretch of highway is subject to corrupt police practices of illegal searches.

If you drive the 401 have your licence, registration and insurance close by.

If you don't have it, it will be used as grounds for illegal searches

for the purposes of finding drugs but without any evidence.


We will hear more on that story in due course.

If you are subject to illegal searches on the 401, send us an email
