Man drives 70km over speed limit in Bay
A MOTORCYCLIST in his 40s has lost his licence for six months after he was clocked riding more than 70km over the speed limit.
About 7.32am on Saturday, the Hervey Bay man was caught on Woods Rd, Nikenbah.
Police say he was doing150kmh in a 80kmh zone.
He received a $1177 fine, lost eight points and was suspended from driving.
The riders actions prompted Hervey Bay Senior Constable Leigh Nancarrow to issue a stern reminder to road users.
"That speed in that zone is very dangerous," she said.
"There's a lot of information out there on the fatal five and speeding is one of them.
"Travelling at that speed (it's) just dangerous and some drivers choose to disobey those rules."
Snr Const Nancarrow said there had been "far too many" speeding on Fraser Coast roads.
She said despite the end of school holidays, drivers needed to remain alert and on the look out for children to avoid a devastating accident.
