GORMANVILLE: A 46-year-old Noel area man was nabbed going more than twice the speed limit on Highway 354 on Jan. 7.
East Hants RCMP S/Sgt. Cory Bushell said a member from the detachment was on patrol in the Gormanville area when he observed a Volkswagen Golf travelling at a high rate of speed along the road, near Findley Road in North Noel Road.
“The officer clocked the car travelling at 176 kilometres per hour in an 80 km/h zone,” said S/Sgt. Bushell.
He said the vehicle was stopped and the driver was charged with stunting. His vehicle was seized and towed.
The fine for stunting in Nova Scotia is $2,422.50.
The report was among those included in the East Hants RCMP’s weekly From the Cruiser police briefs for Jan. 5-12. Watch for those later this week.
