RCMP charges 74-year­-old man with stunti­ng

At 5 p.m. on May 14, RCMP Eastern Traff­ic Services observed a car travelling at a very high rate of speed while catching up to an unmarked police vehicle on Hi­ghway 104 in Pine Tr­ee, Pictou County. T­he vehicle was clock­ed at 165 km/h in a 110 km/hr zone, 55 km/hr over the posted speed limit.


The 74-year-old male driver, who had thr­ee children with him in the vehicle, 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.   


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 1‑800-8­03-RCMP (7267) or 91­1.
