P-plater slowed


ROSEBUD police allegedly clocked an 18-year-old P1 probationary driver at 163kph on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway last week.

The Cranbourne North man had only had his licence for three months when intercepted in the early hours of Saturday 25 January. His car was impounded.

His was one of three vehicles spotted on Arthurs Seat Road and followed onto the freeway where police say they all “accelerated heavily to speeds well in excess of the 100kph limit”.

The intercepted driver will be summonsed to appear at court where he faces a minimum 12 months’ loss of licence. The registered owners of the other two cars will be asked to identify the drivers of their cars at the time they were seen speeding, and those drivers will also be interviewed.
