Police charge man for stunting

Halifax Regional Police have charged a man for driving more than 50 km/h over the posted speed limit on the Hammonds Plains Road in Bedford.

At approximately 3:45 a.m. today, a west division patrol officer observed a car travelling at a high rate of speed inbound on the Hammonds Plains Road as it approaches Bluewater Road in Bedford. The officer captured the vehicle’s speed at 142 km/h in a 70 km/h zone.

A 20-year-old man from Hammonds Plains 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.

In a continued effort to address traffic safety issues and educate citizens on the rules of the road, our officers focus on speed enforcement. We all have a role to play in keeping our roads safe. If you see someone driving dangerously, report it to police by calling 9-1-1.
