Highway halt


SOMERVILLE Highway Patrol members nabbed a speedster allegedly travelling 88km/h over the speed limit on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway overnight Friday, 29 December.

The car was allegedly detected travelling at 188kph in a 100 zone just north of the Nepean Highway near Dromana shortly after 1am.

The driver, a 32-year-old Rowville man, was intercepted and his vehicle impounded.

He is expected to be charged on summons with speeding.

The intercept was made as part of the Victoria-wide 15 December – 7 January Roadwise campaign aimed at reducing road trauma and improving road user behaviour.

During the “high risk” time police focused on the main causes of fatalities and serious injuries, including excessive speed, driver distraction, seatbelt non-compliance, fatigue and drink and drug drivers.
