News release

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 December 2022, the Nova Scotia RCMP charged 9 drivers with stunting on a number of highways across the province. The following drivers were caught travelling at speeds that caused significant concern:

  • 175 km/h in a 100 km/h zone on Highway 102 in Bedford;
  • 154 km/h in a 100 km/h zone on Highway 125 in Mira Road;
  • 147 km/h in a 70 km/h zone on Highway 105 in North Sydney;
  • 140 km/h in an 80 km/h zone on Station Road in Londonderry;
  • 103 km/h in a 50 km/h zone on Main Street in Sydney Mines;

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.
