A MAN will be without his car and is more than $1000 out of pocket after having his car impounded at Rosebud, Wednesday 3 July.

Rosebud police nabbed the Ford Falcon, displaying red P-plates, travelling at 100kph in a 50kph zone on Pt Nepean Road, 6.15am.

The 22-year-old Somerville man told police he was running late for work.

Things only got worse when the man was unable to produce his licence and a roadworthy check of the car found no tread on the front tyres.

The man’s car was impounded at a cost of $1075. He is expected to be charged on summons with driving at a dangerous speed, exceeding the speed limit, failing to carry his licence and driving an unroadworthy vehicle.
