A motorcyclist has been charged after his speed was checked at more than 100kms over the speed limit in Mornington last night.

The motorcyclist, a 31-year-old Mornington man, came to a stop when intercepted but attempted to drive off as members approached, colliding with the police vehicle.

Police arrested the rider and impounded his motorcycle for 30 days at a cost of $950.

The rider is also expected to be charged on summons with reckless conduct endangering life, unregistered vehicle, disqualified driving, refuse roadside drug test, evade police and other traffic offences.
