AMHERST – A New Brunswick man clocked travelling more than 180 kilometres/hour Monday, has lost his license and had his car impounded.

RCMP Northern Traffic services discovered the car, driven by a 30-year-old Dieppe, N.B. man, travelling at 182km/h near Oxford on the Trans Canada Highway.

Cpl. Darren Galley said as the speeding vehicle continued eastbound toward Truro, a second Mountie observed the same vehicle travelling at 150 km/h.

When the man was finally stopped he was charged under the province’s Stunting law, resulting in an immediate seven-day driving suspension and a seven-day impounding of the vehicle.

    I truly hope that drivers who engage in this type of reckless behavior are prosecuted to the full extent. I encourage all police jurisdictions to catch and prosecute these type of infractions. Hopefully, at the end of the day, it will make our highways safer. My children share roads with drivers like this. I am appalled!!
