Speedsters not getting message

Two motorists speeding through Old Guildford over the weekend were clocked by police reaching speeds of at least 130km/h.

Some drivers just aren’t getting the message, says Commander of Traffic and Highway Patrol Command Assistant Commissioner Karen Webb.
“Speeding is not only illegal but selfish, as you’re endangering the lives of your passengers and every road user,” she said.
“Speeding is not worth the penalty or risking lives. Slow down, plan ahead and realise you’re not above the law and will be caught.”
Last Friday about 11.20pm, a Mitsubishi Lancer was detected travelling at 139km/h in a 70km/h zone on Woodville Road at Old Guildford. Fairfield Highway Patrol officers stopped the vehicle and spoke to the 33-year-old driver, who was suspended from driving for six months and his vehicle seized and impounded for a period of three months. He was issued an infringement notice for exceed speed (over 45km/h).
The following night at 10.40pm, police saw a Honda Accord and a Lexus following each other on Woodville Road at Old Guildford, allegedly reaching speeds up to 130km/h. Officers pulled the Lexus over and spoke to the driver, a 21-year-old man, who was issued an infringement notice for exceed speed (over 45km/h) and his licence suspended. Officers then attended the registered address for the Honda and spoke to the 18-year-old, who was issued an infringement notice for exceed speed (over 45km/h) and his licence suspended for six months.
