Yesterday evening at approximately 8:50 p.m., an RCMP officer conducting radar enforcement on Waverley Rd. observed a motorcycle travelling at a speed of 108 km/h in a 50 km/h zone.
The driver of the motorcycle, a 25-year-old man from Dartmouth, was pulled over near a Metro Transit turning area and issued a ticket. His driver’s license was immediately suspended and the motorcycle has been seized for a period of one week. Upon conviction, the driver will face a fine of $2,418 and six points will be assigned to his driver’s record.
Stunting can be defined as travelling more than 50 km/h over the posted speed limit. The RCMP takes these matters seriously and will continue to target this form of aggressive driving to help keep Nova Scotia’s roadways safe and prevent serious injuries and fatal collisions. The RCMP also reminds the public that if you observe stunting or any other type of aggressive driving, please call 911 and report it.
