It’s never a safe bet to double down on breaking the speed limit.
Mounties in Nova Scotia stopped a vehicle that was going 206 km/h in a 100 km/h zone on Highway 102 just after noon on Thursday.
Police say the 40-year-old male driver from Bedford was charged with stunting under the provincial Motor Vehicle Act. The fine for stunting in Nova Scotia is $2,422.50. The driver's licence was suspended and the vehicle was seized.
“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,” the Mounties said in a news release.
The RCMP reminded drivers to report dangerous driving by calling them at 1-800-803-RCMP (7267) or 911.
