February 18, 2011, Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) .. Members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) charged a male driver with "stunting" under Section 163(1)(f) of the Motor Vehicle Act.
On February 17, 2011, 11:14 PM, RCMP stopped a 17-year-old male for exceeding the legal speed. He was traveling in excess of the posted speed limit while driving westbound on Highway 101 near Exit 2.
