A TEENAGER on his P-plates has been charged with furious driving and had his licence suspended on the spot after he was allegedly clocked tearing down the Pacific Highway at more than 200km/h in Newcastle.

The 18-year-old was already on bail for other offences when he was spotted by highway patrol officers speeding south along the highway at Raymond Terrace around 10.30am on Friday.

Police allegedly clocked the teen’s vehicle travelling at 209km/h in the 110 zone.


Officers intercepted the vehicle a short time later and arrested the 18-year-old driver.

He was conveyed to Raymond Terrace Police Station where he was charged with driving recklessly/furiously or speed/manner dangerous and being a P2 driver and exceeding the speed by more than 45km/h.

The local teen’s licence was suspended and he was also charged with not displaying P-plates on the vehicle and for breaching his bail conditions.

He was remanded in custody and appeared in Raymond Terrace Local Court on Friday afternoon where he was released on conditional bail ahead of his next appearance on April 18.
