Caught on Western Port


A MERCEDES sedan allegedly travelling at 165kph along the Western Port Highway at Somerville was later impounded for 30 days with an $895 release fee.

Police said they saw the AMG sedan accelerating past a line of north-bound traffic in a 100kph zone, Sunday 28 June.

The driver, 49, from Doncaster, is expected to receive a summons to appear at a magistrates’ court at a later date.

The impound forms part of Operation Artemis over the school holidays targeting speeding, drink and drug driving, and driver distraction, police said.
