Nova Scotia RCMP release monthly provincial stunting statistics for February 2021
As Nova Scotia’s Provincial Police, road safety is a top priority. In an effort to keep citizens informed about enforcement on our roadways, the RCMP is releasing statistics on stunting charges monthly.
In February 2021, Nova Scotia RCMP charged six drivers with stunting. Of particular note during the month, two drivers in Kings District were charged with stunting. One driver was travelling on Hwy. 221 near Canning at 120 km/h in a 70 km/h zone. The other was a driver travelling at 130 km/h in a 80 km/h zone on Ridge Rd. in Wolfville. Other stunting charges in the province included a driver travelling at 124km/h in a 70 km/h zone on St. Margaret’s Bay Rd. in Hubley.
Stunting is defined as any person who operates a motor vehicle on a highway in a race, in a contest, while performing a stunt or on a bet or wager. Anyone driving a motor vehicle 50 Km/hr or more, over a speed limit, may be charged with stunting.
The fine for stunting in Nova Scotia is $2,422.50 for a first offence, six points on your license and an immediate seven day roadside license suspension.
Speed is one of the major causes of serious injury and fatal collisions on our roads. Road safety is a priority for the RCMP and drivers are reminded to make it their priority as well. If you see someone driving unsafely on our roads, please report it by calling the RCMP at 1-800-803-RCMP (7267). If you believe it is an emergency, call 911.
