An off-duty cop spotted a rare sight in quiet, quaint Nova Scotia on Sunday.
A Chevy Camaro and a Mercedes-AMG C 63 with Alberta plates apparently drove across the country to race their performance machines on a small highway, reaching 232 km/h (nearly 150 mph) in the process.
The two men were 43 and 48 years old were charged with “stunting”. According to Canadian law, stunting is defined as “perform or engage in any stunt or other activity on a roadway that is likely to distract, startle, or interfere with other users of the roadway”.
Flying by at 232 km/h on a highway limited at 110 km/h would certainly qualify as distracting for other drivers. Especially in Nova Scotia, a province in the Maritimes where people tend to enjoy life, not rush through it.
The men were handed a $2,422.50 fine, the vehicles were seized and impounded, and their driver’s licenses were suspended for 7 days.
This wasn’t the only stunting charge laid down by Nova Scotia police over the weekend. A 54-year-old driver was caught at 167 km/h (104 mph) in a 110 km/h zone (69 mph).
