The 17-year-old male provisional driver from Macgregor was stopped for speeding after his white Holden Commodore sedan was detected travelling at 167 km/h in an 80 km/h zone.
The 17-year-old was issued an infringement for exceeding the speed limit by greater than 45 km/h. The offence carries a fine of $1841 and six demerit points.
As a Provisional licence holder, this accumulation of demerit points will result in his licence being suspended for a period of three months.
