A man has been charged after he was detected allegedly travelling at more than 110km/h above the speed limit in Sydney’s north-west this morning.
Shortly before 1am (Thursday 28 March 2019), Traffic and Highway Patrol Officers were conducting stationary speed enforcement on Old Windsor Road, near the intersection of Norwest Boulevard, Bella Vista, when they detected a rider of a blue Kawasaki allegedly travelling at 193km/h in a sign posted 80km/h zone.
Police stopped the rider on Miami Street, Glenwood, and arrested a 27-year-old man.
He was taken to Castle Hill Police Station where he was issued a Field Court Attendance Notice for the offences of drive at speed dangerous to the public, and exceed speed more than 45km/h.
His licence was also suspended.
The North Kellyville man is due to appear at Parramatta Local Court on Friday 24 April 2019.
Assistant Commissioner Michael Corboy of the state’s Traffic & Highway Patrol Command said that it is this sort of behaviour costing lives on NSW roads.
“With the road toll currently at 103, being 11 more deaths than this time last year, clearly, road users need to do more to ensure the safety of not only themselves, but other road users.”
“Twenty motorcyclists have died so far this year in crashes, which is seven more than the same time last year. The actions of this rider could easily have added to these sad and tragic numbers on our roads.”
“We know that speeding, drink or drug driving, not wearing a seat belt or proper helmet, driving fatigued or distracted, are all the leading causes of serious injury and fatal crashes on NSW roads.”
