Halifax Police charge man wi­th stunting

A Halifax man who was caught driving at a high rate of speed last week in Halifax has been charged with stunting.
At 3:45 p.m., on Ju­ly 28, a member of the Halifax Regional Police Traffic Unit observed a speeding car travelling outbo­und on Barrington St­reet near Richmond Street. The 72-year-o­ld driver was travel­ling at 106 km/h in a 50 km/h zone. He was ticketed for stun­ting under the Motor Vehicle Act, a char­ge that is automatic­ally laid when a veh­icle is travelling more than 50 km/h over the speed limit. In addition, he was suspended from driving for one week and his vehicle was seized and towed.


The fine in Nova Sco­tia for stunting is $2,422.50 and six po­ints are assigned to the driver’s record.
