Highway 104 is not the place to race

Prior to 12 p.m. on August 4, RCMP Northwest Traffic Services of Amherst were conducting radar enforcement on Highway 104 in the Thomson Station area.

There was heavy traffic on the Trans Canada due to the long weekend.  As one officer was travelling east on Highway 104 they observed two vehicles travelling west bound at a high rate of speed.  It appeared that these two vehicles were racing.

The officer locked in one of the vehicles travelling at 159 km/hr in a 110 km/hr zone.  The 29-year-old man from Lakeside, Nova Scotia, was driving a 2010 Acura CSX.  He was issued a ticket for speeding with a fine of $410.00.

A second officer was parked in a turn-around in the median nearby and locked in the second vehicle travelling at a speed of 232 km/hr in a 110 Km/hr zone. A 19-year-old man from Quebec, who was driving a 2003 Infiniti G35, was charged for Stunting under the Provincial Motor Vehicle Act.  The fine for stunting in Nova Scotia is $2,422.50. The driver’s licence was suspended and the vehicle was seized.

Northwest Traffic Services want to remind the public that speed is one of the major causes of serious injury and fatal collisions on our roads. Road Safety is a priority for the RCMP, and drivers are reminded to make it their priority as well. If you see someone driving unsafely on our roads, report it by calling RCMP at 800-803-RCMP (7267) or 911.
