Officers from the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have charged a driver following a road rage incident in the Town of Caledon.

On Monday, September 27, 2021, at approximately 1:05 p.m., officers responded to a two-vehicle collision on Airport Road. Information was received that the drivers of the involved vehicles got into a physical altercation following a minor rear-end collision.

Police investigation revealed that the collision occurred as a result of road rage. As a result, Vito FOGGETTI, 35, of Caledon, has been charged with Assault.

The accused is expected to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on December 9, 2021 to answer to the charge.

Caledon OPP is reminding drivers that road rage is a serious and dangerous action that puts others at risk. To avoid road rage, consider the following:

• Give other drivers a break – if someone is driving slowly, keep in mind they might be lost

• Use hand gestures wisely

• Don’t tailgate – always keep a safe distance from the car in front, no matter how slowly they might be driving

• Lay off the horn – it will just increase the stress level for everyone on the road.

• Don’t stop to confront another driver – stopping could lead to a dangerous situation for everyone
