A woman has been charged with stunting after the RCMP stopped a vehicle travelling at almost three times the speed limit in Queens County on Sunday.
A police officer doing a traffic patrol clocked the vehicle doing 141 km/h in a 50 km/h zone on Highway 210 in Greenfield at 1:30 p.m., RCMP said in a news release Wednesday.
The officer stopped the vehicle and charged the 35-year-old driver with stunting, the release said. Her vehicle was seized and towed, and her driver's licence was suspended for seven days.
The fine for stunting in Nova Scotia is $2,422.50.
“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 release said.
