Driver allegedly clocked travelling at 232km/h

A MAN has had his prized high-performance car impounded after he was allegedly clocked driving at more than 220km/h through a 90 zone in Western Australia’s Mid West.

Police said officers first spotted the man’s Holden HSV Clubsport travelling at an estimated 232km/h through the 90 zone at Rudds Gully in Geraldton on Friday evening.

The man, who police said was travelling with a female passenger, was then officially clocked on radar travelling at 225km/h.

Police from the Mid West Gascoyne Traffic Enforcement Group said the man’s actions were “honestly stupid and dangerous”.

“No excuse would ever justify it,” police said on Twitter.

“The road is not a race track.”

The driver was arrested and his Holden HSV was seized.

Assistant Commissioner Regional Western Australia Murray Smalpage also commented on the matter on Twitter and urged the courts to “throw the book” at the driver.

“Doesn’t deserve a licence – throw the book at them,” he said. “No care for other users and the passenger in his car.”
