A 19-year-old Queanbeyan man who was caught driving an unregistered, uninsured black ute at 140km/h in a 60km/h zone in Cook last night will face court today charged with aggravated furious/reckless/dangerous driving, exceed speed limit, use unregistered vehicle, use uninsured vehicle and possess plates calculated to deceive.

Around 11.50pm yesterday ACT Policing Traffic Operation members were conducting a mobile patrol when they identified a black Holden Commodore utility speeding along Bindubi Street, Cook.

Police detected the ute travelling at 107km/h in an 80km/h zone.

Police followed the vehicle onto Lyttleton Crescent, Cook and conducted a further speed check to find it was travelling at 140km/h in a 60km/h zone.

Police affected a vehicle stop on the utility and arrested the 19-year-old driver. Further police enquiries indicated the number plates on the utility belonged to another vehicle and that the utility was not registered and was uninsured.

The 19-year-old was conveyed to the ACT Watch House and will appear in the ACT Magistrates Court this morning.

107 on Bindubi is fairly meh, but 140 on Lyttleton? Struth.
