It's when i read information like this, Im glad that i've temporary sold my bike. As much as i love having a twist on a nice "public" road, I think its safer (primarly money and hassel wise) to leave it for the track. http://www.police.nsw.gov.au/news/l...nb3YuYXUlMkZtZWRpYSUyRjExMTQyLmh0bWwmYWxsPTE= Police are frustrated over the large number of motorists caught travelling at high speeds across the state this weekend. On Saturday (8 May), police from Sutherland Highway Patrol conducted a major operation in the Royal National Park at Sutherland and detected 10 motorists travelling more than 45km/h over the 60km/h speed limit. All received a $1744 infringement notice and incurred six demerit points. For this serious offence police also have the power to instantly suspend the driver’s licence for six months. All of these drivers had their licences suspended. Two other motorists were caught travelling between 30km/h and 45km/h over the sign-posted limit. They also had their licences suspended. Over the past few days police also detected a number of other motorists travelling well in excess of the speed limit: • At 2.22pm on Friday (7 May), a 31-year-old man was detected travelling at 235km/h in a 110km/h zone on the Hume Highway at Holbrook. He was issued a field court attendance notice for drive at a speed dangerous and exceed speed over 45km/h. His licence was also suspended on the spot. • At 5.16am on Saturday (8 May), a 20-year-old ACT provisional driver was detected travelling at 158km/h in a 100km/h zone on the Barton Highway at Jeir. He was issued a ticket for exceed speed over 45km/h and his licence was suspended. • At 7.10pm on Saturday (8 May), an 18-year-old P1 driver was detected travelling at 121km/h in a 50km/h zone on Edgar Street at Auburn. Police issued the man a field court attendance notice for drive at a speed dangerous and suspended his licence on the spot. • At 7.02am on Sunday (9 May), a 28-year-old man was caught driving at 170km/h in a 100km/h zone on the M7 at Oakhurst. He was also issued a ticket for exceeding the speed limit over 45km/h and had his licence suspended. Assistant Commissioner John Hartley, Commander of Traffic Services, said some motorists still are not getting the message. “People have to realise that just because you are in a rural area, on a straight stretch of road, it is not safe to speed. Motorists continue to die needlessly after travelling at excessive speeds. “I can assure you that if you insist on this stupid behaviour you will find yourself on the receiving end of a $1744 ticket, if you don’t kill yourself first,” Assistant Commissioner Hartley said.
