A 29-year-old Halifax man has been charged with stunting on a snowy Friday afternoon.
Halifax Regional Police say an officer captured the vehicle's speed at 151 km/h in a 100 km/h zone on Highway 118 near Wright Avenue.
It happened around 2 p.m. and police describe the roadway as "snow covered" at the time.
The fine in Nova Scotia for stunting is $2,422.50 and six points are assigned to the driver's record.
The man has also been suspended from driving for a week and the vehicle he was driving was seized and towed.
"Winter driving conditions can vary dramatically in our region and require the driver's full attention," HRP said in a news release. "Road conditions often warrant a significantly slower speed than what is posted."
When roads are slick and/or snow covered, police recommend giving yourself more time to get where you're going, and making sure there's extra space between you and the vehicle ahead of you.
