January 11, 2016, Afton, Nova Scotia . . . Antigonish District RCMP has charged a male youth for Stunting. Yesterday evening at approximately 6:00 p.m. a member of the Antigonish RCMP observed a vehicle traveling at a speed of 160 km/h in a 100 km/h zone on HWY 104. The 16-year-old driver from Paq’tnkek has been immediately suspended from driving for a minimum period of one week. Upon conviction, the driver faces a fine of $2422.50 and an automatic six points will be assigned to his driver’s record. Stunting can be defined as traveling more than 50km/h over the posted speed limit. The RCMP take these matters seriously and deem them to be one of the most dangerous forms of aggressive driving. The RCMP will continue to target this form of driving to prevent serious injury and fatal collisions and to help keep Nova Scotia’s roadways safe.
