Stunting: 50km/h over limit on highway 111

Police have charged a woman with stunting.

Halifax Regional Police have charged a woman with driving in excess of 50 km/h over the posted speed limit yesterday in Dartmouth.

At approximately 12:15 p.m. a member of the Traffic Unit observed a car travelling at a high rate of speed on Highway 111 travelling southbound. The officer captured the vehicle’s speed at 103 km/h in a 50 km/h zone.

A 33-year-old Lower Sackville woman was ticketed for stunting under the Motor Vehicle Act, a charge that is automatically laid when a vehicle is travelling more than 50 km/h over the speed limit. In addition, the woman was suspended from driving for one week and the vehicle was seized and towed.
