One driver will have his licence suspended and another is one demerit point from a suspension after they were caught by ACT Policing driving dangerously.
In the first incident, police were undertaking a targeted early-morning operation when they detected a grey BMW 330i sedan speeding at 148 km/h in a 100 km/h zone on the Monaro Highway, Gilmore, at 6:25 am on Wednesday (16 November).
The 45-year-old driver from Calwell was fined $1841 and copped six demerit points for exceeding the speed limit by more than 45 km/h.
Further police checks revealed he’d previously been caught speeding by more than 45 km/h in May 2021.
Including this recent incident, it meant he had enough demerit points applied to his licence that it was suspended.
In an unrelated incident, an 18-year-old P-plater was busted fish-tailing his Ford utility around a Chisholm roundabout.
The Isabella Plains man’s dangerous driver was captured on a dash-cam at about 4:25 pm on Monday (14 November).
Police later spoke with the man and issued an infringement notice for improper use of a motor vehicle, which resulted in a $700 fine and three demerit points.
As P-platers only have four points available on their licences, if he’s caught breaking the road rules in the next 12 months, his licence will be suspended.
