Shippagan man receives one year ban on driving and over $4K in fines

A young motorist from Shippagan has received a one year ban on driving and more than $4,000 in fines for offences under the Motor Vehicle Act.

19 year old Jonathan Chiasson-Roy was charged with several offences, including speeding in a school zone, driving a motor vehicle in poor condition, as well as obstructing and failing to stop for police.

RCMP say they've received nearly 50 complaints concerning Chiasson-Roy's driving.

He'll return to court in October to face other driving-related charges.
