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.

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.
