A newly-licensed driver has been charged with stunting after he was allegedly caught driving almost double the speed limit on Nova Scotia’s Highway 103.
The RCMP stopped the 19-year-old Upper Tantallon man in Timberlea, between exits 3 and 4, around 11:50 p.m. Sunday.
They allege he had been travelling 200 km/h in a 110 km/h zone.
Police seized the vehicle and the man’s driver’s license was immediately suspended for seven days.
He faces a fine of $2422.50 and a loss of six points on his driving record if convicted.
