NEW GLASGOW – Police have charged a 44-year-old man with stunting following an incident that took place Friday night.
On April 21 at approximately 10:05 p.m., New Glasgow Regional Police stopped a 2013 Ford Mustang on Little Harbour Road for driving 114 km/h in a 50 km/h zone.
The driver, from Pictou County, was charged under the section 163(1) of the Motor Vehicle Act with stunting. This occurs when the driver of the vehicle is going more than 50 km/h over the speed limit.
