Two people have been charged with stunting for driving more than double the speed limit in Halifax.
In a news release, Halifax Regional Police said a Traffic Unit officer saw two cars speed down Joseph Howe Drive at around 9:45 a.m. Monday.
Police said they ticketed a 24-year-old man and 23-year-old woman for going 127 km/h in a 50 km/h zone.
Under the Motor Vehicle Act, police must issue a charge if a driver travels more than 50 km/h over the speed limit.
The man and woman received a seven-day driving suspension and police seized and impounded their vehicles, according to the release.
The charge for stunting involves a $2,422.50 fine and six points assigned to the driver’s record.
