Ontario Provincial Police are set to announce charges against several people in connection with motorcycle stunt driving that disrupted traffic on all Toronto-area highways on a Sunday afternoon in August.

The Criminal Code and Highway Traffic Act charges will be announced Wednesday afternoon at a news conference in Vaughan, north of Toronto.

OPP say some of the vehicles seized as evidence will also be displayed.

On Aug. 6, police received numerous complaints about dozens of riders driving aggressively and coming to a full stop on highways to perform various stunts and wheelies.

Police said a large group of riders was seen on all major highways in the Toronto area.

OPP appealed to anyone with dash cam videos or photographs of the motorcyclists to turn them over to help officers identify them.
