Seven drivers caught in early morning speed enforcement operation

Seven drivers will be issued fines totalling more than $4,700 and incur 25 demerit points following an early morning speed enforcement operation on Friday 28 May.

This includes one driver caught doing 152km/h in an 100km/h zone on the Federal Highway at Watson, resulting in a $1,841 fine and the loss of 6 points.

The remaining six drivers were caught doing speeds ranging from 23km/h to 36km/h above the posted limits on Horse Park Drive and the Majura Parkway.

The incidents included:

  • 103km/h in an 80km/h zone – Horse Park Drive, Harrison – $438 fine and 3 points
  • 107km/h in an 80km/h zone – Horse Park Drive, Throsby – $438 fine and 3 points
  • 110km/h in an 80km/h zone – Horse Park Drive, Throsby – $438 fine and 3 points
  • 116km/h in an 80km/h zone – Horse Park Drive, Throsby – $700 fine and 4 points
  • 120km/h in an 100km/h zone – Majura Parkway, Majura – $438 fine and 3 points
  • 120km/h in an 100km/h zone – Majura Parkway, Majura – $438 fine and 3 points
  • 152km/h in an 100km/h zone – Federal Highway, Watson – $1841 fine and 6 points

This enforcement activity occurred between 4am and 7am and ACT Policing is reminding drivers that just because there is less traffic doesn’t mean the posted limits don’t apply. Just a few kilometres over the posted limit at any time greatly increases the chances of a collision.   

ACT Policing will continue to target speeding drivers at all hours of the day and night in an effort to make ACT roads safer for all road users.

Anyone with information regarding excessive speeding is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website. Information can be provided anonymously.
