"It doesn't matter what you're driving, you can still be taken off the road for stunt driving on any type of vehicle," Schmidt said. 

"If you want to have that kind of driving experience, take it to the track."

Police are appealing to anyone who was driving on Highway 400 on Sunday afternoon with information or dashcam video to contact them.
