Yesterday evening at approximately 9:15 p.m., an RCMP Metro Traffic Services officer observed a vehicle travelling at a speed of 199 km/h in a 100 km/h zone on Highway 102.
The 16-year-old driver from Bedford had several other teen passengers in his vehicle. The vehicle was pulled over near Lower Sackville and the driver was issued a ticket and his driver’s license was immediately suspended 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 prevent serious injury and fatal collisions and to help keep Nova Scotia’s roadways safe. The RCMP also reminds the public that if you observe stunting or any other type of aggressive driving, please call 911 and report it.
