Antigonish, Nova Scotia.
A 48-year-old man from Antigonish County faces several charges after fleeing from the RCMP.
At 3:40 p.m. on April 12, RCMP Eastern Traffic Services observed a motorcycle travelling above the posted speed limit on Highway 4 in Tracadie. When police attempted to conduct a traffic stop, the driver increased his speed up to 150 km/hr in a 70 km/hr zone and failed to stop.
The driver eventually stopped and police determined that he did not have a valid driver’s license, the motorcycle was not registered and it did not have liability insurance. As a result, the driver faces the following charges:
- Flight from Police
- Operating a Motor Vehicle While License is Revoked
- Operating a Motor Vehicle Without Liability Insurance
- Operating an Unregistered Vehicle
