Three high-speed drivers prompt police to issue warning

POLICE are warning drivers to slow down after three high-speed offences took place along parts of the Bruce Highway over the weekend.

Officers from Tiaro and Howard police were kept busy during the school holidays and say the most disturbing thing about the three cases is the time at which they occurred.

About 7:40pm on July 5 a P-plater driver was intercepted travelling at 154km/hr in a 100km/hr zone along the Bruce Highway at Gunalda.

Then, about 12:50pm on July 6 a 22-year-old driver was caught travelling at 179km/hr in a 100km/hr zone along the Bruce Highway at Howard.

Approximately half an hour later in the same area another motorist was intercepted travelling 132km/hr in a 80km/hr zone.

Each driver was issued with a fine for $1026, eight demerit points and six months licence suspension.
