NSW Police inform us that they’ve caught an Illawarra boy 115kmph over his L-plated limit on the Federal Highway near Sutton:
About 5.35am today officers attached to the Monaro Highway Patrol were conducting patrols along the Federal Highway near Sutton when they saw a north bound red Hyosung motorcycle allegedly travelling at high speed.
A lidar check of the bike allegedly revealed the rider was travelling at 195km/h in a 110km/h.
The male rider was stopped by police near the Yass River a short time later. It was established that the man held a learner’s motorcycle licence, which restricts riders to a speed limit of 80km/h.
The 24-year-old Woonona man was arrested at the scene and taken to Queanbeyan Police Station where he was charged with driving at a speed dangerous to the public and fail to display L plates as required.
He had his learner licence suspended on the spot and will appear at Queanbeyan Local Court on Monday 25 October.
