A DISQUALIFIED driver will face court next month after being detected travelling more than 60kmh above the sign-posted speed limit in the Royal National Park at the weekend.
Sutherland Traffic and Highway Patrol Command were conducting speed enforcement duties on Lady Wakehurst Drive, Otford, about 2pm on Saturday when they detected a VW Golf hatch allegedly travelling at 145kmh in an 80kmh zone.
Police spoke to the driver, a 24-year-old woman, who produced an international driver’s licence. The woman’s breath test was negative; however, checks revealed the woman’s NSW Learner’s Licence was disqualified until 2021.
The Chinese National was issued a Field Court Attendance Notice for drive while disqualified and she is due to appear at Sutherland Local Court on Thursday December 13.
The woman was also issued an infringement notice for exceeding the speed limit by more than 45kmh, which carries a penalty of $2435 and six demerit points.
