‘Burgh teen clocked at more than twice the speed limit

A HELENSBURGH ”P plater” was clocked by police allegedly travelling at 211kmh in a 110kmh speed zone at Waterfall this morning.

The 19-year-old Helensburgh man, whose plates restrict his speed to 100kmh, was travelling south on the F6 Freeway in his Holden SV6 utility about 9.30am when police stopped him after allegedly doing almost twice the speed limit.

Officers took note of the registration before attempting to catch up with the vehicle that was then seen to use an emergency vehicle U-turn bay to head north on the F6 Freeway.

Officers caught up to the driver where he was spoken to and issued a suspension notice. He will face Sutherland Local Court next month for charges of driving at a dangerous speed and exceeding the speed limit by more than 45kmh.
