A Ford Falcon was stopped by police after travelling at 214 km/h along the Majura Parkway during a spate of highspeed incidents on Saturday (13 June).
The 23-year-old Florey man had three other passengers in the car and is facing a fine of $1841 and 6 demerit points for exceeding the speed limit by more than 45 km/h.
Another Ford ute was clocked at 154 km/h along the Parkway two hours beforehand and a third driver was caught going 163 km/h the day before.
A P-plate driver was also charged with exceeding the speed limit by more than 45 km/h and will lose his licence after being caught travelling at 125 km/h along Gungahlin Drive in an 80 zone.
Officer in Charge of Traffic Operations, Detective Inspector Marcus Boorman, called the drivers’ behaviour disgusting and indefensible.
“When you exceed the speed limit by more than 100 km/h you display a complete disregard for your own life, your passengers and other motorists,” Detective Inspector Boorman said.
“It is idiotic, dangerous and completely indefensible. We have seen too much of this behaviour lately. Do these people have a death wish or do they want to kill someone else?
“At the speeds we are talking about here, you have no margin for error. Make the slightest mistake and you are facing tragic consequences.”
