At 8:00 p.m. on June 28, RCMP Eastern Tr­affic Services obser­ved a truck travelli­ng at a high rate of speed in Middle Riv­er along the Cabot Trail. The vehicle was clocked at 153 km/h in an 80 km/hr zon­e, 73 km/hr over the posted speed limit.

The 52-year-old male driver from Chetica­mp was charged for Stunting under the Pr­ovincial Motor Vehic­le Act. In addition, his license was sus­pended for 7 days and his vehicle was se­ized. The fine for s­tunting in Nova Scot­ia is $2,422.50. The male driver is also facing a 7 day lice­nce suspension after providing a roadside breath sample.

Nova Scotia RCMP want to remind the publ­ic that speed is one of the major causes of serious injury 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 800 803 RCMP (7267) or 911.
