Carlsruhe clown clocked on the Calder

Macedon Ranges Highway Patrol members intercepted a vehicle in Carlsruhe last night (6 November), Victoria Police say.

The 22-year-old Carlsruhe man was allegedly caught travelling at 207km/h in a 110km/h zone on the Calder Highway about 9.20pm.

When police intercepted the white Holden utility, the driver allegedly returned an evidentiary breath test reading of 0.138.

The probationary licence holder had his vehicle impounded for 30 days at a cost of $1,475.00 and his licence was immediately suspended.

He is expected to be charged on summons with a number of traffic and driving offences.

The impound forms part of Operation Furlong, a state-wide road policing operation over the Melbourne Cup Carnival weekend.

The operation focusses on the safety of all road users over the period, targeting drink and drug driving, speed, distraction, fatigue and seatbelt use.

Operation Furlong commenced at 12.01am on Friday 2 November and concluded at 11.59 on Tuesday 6 November.
