Double speed limit in Shepparton

Shepparton Highway Patrol officers have nabbed a driver allegedly travelling at 191km/h in Shepparton about 11.50pm last night.

The 20-year-old probationary driver was detected in an 80km/h zone on Goulburn Valley Highway.

The Shepparton man has had his Holden Commodore ute impounded for 30 days at a cost of $1240.

He will be charged on summons with numerous traffic offences.

This detection forms part of Operation Nexus, a five day high visibility road policing operation over the Easter long weekend.

The state-wide operation will focus on country road users, speed, impaired drivers, seatbelts, on and off road motorcycles, fatigue due to long distance travel and driver distraction through mobile technology and navigation devices.

Priority areas include traffic corridors that link metropolitan areas to popular holiday destinations such as the Grampians, Surf Coast, Great Ocean Road, Greater Shepparton Area, Phillip Island, Bass Coast, South Gippsland, Baw Baw and La Trobe.

Operation Nexus will run from 12.01am on Thursday 18 April to 11.59pm on Monday 22 April 2019.
