Youth charged for driving more than double the speed limit

Just before 2 a.m. yesterday, Inverness County RCMP stopped a car on Reeves St. in Port Hawkesbury for driving 106 km/hr in a 50 km/hr zone. The vehicle also sped through a red light and nearly struck a police vehicle.

The driver of the vehicle, a 14-year-old male from Port Hawkesbury, has been charged with stunting, operating a motor vehicle under the age of 16 and failure to stop at a red light. The fine for stunting in Nova Scotia is $2,422.50.

The youth is scheduled to appear in Port Hawkesbury Provincial Court on February 25, 2019.

Road Safety is a priority for the RCMP, and drivers are reminded to make it their priority as well.
