Carnival is Over for Speeding Kia Driver
Police Catch Speeding Drivers
A number of drivers have been caught speeding over the weekend on our state’s roads.
One man, aged 33, was issued an infringement notice after officers detected him travelling at 154km/h in a 100 zone.
Initially it was thought that the driver was travelling at 254km/h according to NSW Police Media, surprising for the ‘people mover’ that is generally found at a soccer field, but it was later confirmed as a typo.
The man was driving a Kia Carnival along the Pacific Highway at Coolongolook, when he was stopped at 5:17pm on Saturday.
Along with the infringement notice for exceed speed (over 45km/h), his license was also suspended for six months.
In a separate incident, an unaccompanied learner-driver was caught speeding around 9:50pm on Saturday night.
The 19 year old was stopped by officers attached to the the Manning-Great Lakes Highway Patrol when her VW Polo was detected driving approximately 170km/h in a 100km/h zone.
Her licence was suspended on the spot and she was charged with exceed speed (over 45km/h), unaccompanied learner, no ‘L’ plates, not keep left on road with speed limit about 80km/h.
