An 18-year-old has been charged with stunting after RCMP say a vehicle was stopped for travelling at 151 km/hr in a 90 km/hr zone in Digby County.

Police say the vehicle stop happened Wednesday morning and that two school buses were in the area at the time, picking up children.

The vehicle was seized and towed from the scene.

The RCMP say an officer also noted some safety defects with the vehicle, failed an inspection by Provincial Vehicle Compliance Officers, and was deemed unsafe for the road.
