A motorbike rider has been busted doing almost 200km/hour on the Bruce Highway on day one of the Queensland Police Easter road safety blitz.
The motorcycle was snapped yesterday by a speed camera on the Bruce Highway at Landsborough doing 193km/hour in a 110 zone.
There were more than 3,400 vehicles detected speeding and over 11,000 RBTs performed with 41 people charged with drink driving.

It is a better performance on last year when 69 people were charged on day one.
A 22-year-old Sunset man was charged after allegedly returning a blood alcohol level of .273% in the carpark of a fast food outlet at Mount Isa just before midnight.
Police also attended two serious traffic crashes, one at Peak Crossing around 5.50pm where a ute and truck collided on Warrill View Peak Crossing Road.
The 18-year-old male driver of the ute was airlifted in a critical condition to Princess Alexandra Hospital.
A 54-year-old male pedestrian has also received life-threatening head injuries after being struck by a car on Bath Terrace at Victory Heights last night.
