RCMP Metro Traffic Services has charged a 20-year-old female driver with stunting.
Just after 5:30 p.m. yesterday, RCMP Metro Traffic Services stopped a vehicle on Highway 101 for driving at 185 km/h in a 110km/h zone. Three men and a dog were in the vehicle with the driver. The 20-year-old woman from Halifax was charged under section 163(1) of the Motor Vehicle Act with stunting, which occurs when a driver is going more than 50 km/h over the speed limit. She was given a $2422.50 fine, her licence is suspended for a minimum of seven days, and her vehicle was seized.
The RCMP is committed to ensuring the safety of all persons on the highways of Nova Scotia. Driving at these speeds is extremely dangerous and the RCMP is constantly patrolling the highways of the province to ensure speed limits are enforced, and driving at excessive speeds is deterred.
