RCMP charges 18-year­-old driver with stu­nting

 Halifax District RC­MP has charged an 18­-year-old male driver with stunting.

The driver was also charged for not havi­ng liability insuran­ce. His driver’s lic­ense was suspended for seven days and his vehicle was impoun­ded. He could also face a fine of up to $2,422.50. 


Halifax District RCMP want to remind the public that speed is one of the major causes of serious inj­uries 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 902-490-5020 or 911.
