Police charge youth with stunting

A male youth who was caught driving at a high rate of speed today in Dartmouth has been charged with stunting.
At 12:46 p.m., a me­mber of the Halifax Regional Police Traf­fic Unit observed a speeding car travell­ing inbound on Highw­ay 118 near exit 13. The driver, a 17-ye­ar-old Mineville you­th, was caught on ra­dar travelling at 182 km/h in a 100 km/h zone. He has been 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. As a result, the driver is suspended from dri­ving for one week and his vehicle was se­ized and towed. Upon conviction, there is a fine of $2,422.50 and six points are assigned to a perso­n’s driving record.

 

In their continued effort to address tra­ffic safety issues and educate citizens on the rules of the road, the Traffic Un­it continues to focus on speed enforceme­nt. The Traffic Unit encourages citizens to watch their speed and be reminded th­at the faster you dr­ive, the less time you have to react.
