Officers say the vehicle was travelling at 119 km/h in a 60 km/h zone. Police stopped the car and charged the driver, a 19-year-old man from Middle Sackville, N.S., with stunting under the Nova Scotia Motor Vehicle Act.
The following day on March 21, around 4:15 a.m., police clocked an SUV driving 60 km/h over the speed limit on Connolly Road in Lower Sackville, N.S.
RCMP say the driver was travelling 110 km/h in a 50 km/h speed zone. Once police stopped the vehicle, they say the driver was showing signs of impairment.
The driver, a 36-year-old man from Lower Sackville, was charged with refusing a breathalyzer and stunting.
