Two men caught speeding at more than double the speed limit
Police have detected two southern Tasmanian men exceeding the speed limit by 86 kph on Fulham Road, Connelly’s Marsh about 4.10pm yesterday.
Constable Etherington of Dunalley Police Station said both vehicles (a car and a motorcycle) were detected travelling at 166km/h in the 80km/h zone along Fulham Road.
“It’s disappointing that road users continue to place themselves and others at risk by travelling at such high speeds.”
“This is another example of poor driver behaviour and could have easily resulted in serious injury or tragedy,” said Constable Etherington.
Police have the power to clamp or seize vehicles detected travelling at 45kph above the speed limit, in this case the car will be clamped and the motorbike will be seized for a period of 28 days.
The drivers face were fined $1040.00 and disqualified for up to 4 months.
