Durham Regional Police say there were 42 traffic charges laid during a Hells Angels gathering in Whitby last month.
In a statement issued Tuesday, police said there were a total of 172 vehicles processed through checkpoints during the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club Canada Run event, held over the July 22 to 24 weekend at the Brooklin Hells Angels chapter.
Police said there were 30 provincial offence notices issued under the Highway Traffic Act and 12 summonses.
Four licence plates and five helmets were seized. Four vehicles were towed or placed out of service.
There were no “major incidents” and officers only responded to “minimal calls for service,” police said, attributing it to their “robust, professional joint” response.
The statement thanked those who supported the operational plan over that weekend and for residents’ understanding.
“Previous annual events have shown that a strong visible police presence has helped to mitigate adverse impacts on communities,” police said.
