A PROVISIONAL licence holder has allegedly been caught travelling well over the speed limit in Helensburgh on Monday.
About 3.40pm on Monday police allegedly detected a 19-year-old P-plate driver travelling at 198kph in a 110kph zone on the F6 Freeway at Helensburgh.
He was driving a Mitsubishi Magna at the time, and was also issued with an infringement for exceed speed by more than 45kph, and had his licence suspended.
Superintendant Stuart Smith, the Commander of Traffic and Highway Patrol Command, said these speeds are a display of utter madness on our roads.

Meanwhile, Ambulance paramedics were called to Henry St Tarrawanna at 11.33pm on Sunday after reports of a fire.
