Busy weekend for Highway Patrol

About 7.30pm on Friday 16 June 2017, Batemans Bay Highway Patrol were conducting speed enforcement checks on the Kings Highway, Nelligen. A Holden Clubsport sedan was detected travelling east at excess speed, being 154 kph in a 80 kph zone.Police stopped the vehicle and the 29 year old male driver from the ACT was issued an infringement for exceeding the speed limit by more than 45km/h.His drivers licence was suspended for a period of six months. In addition, the vehicle was confiscated and impounded for a period of 3 months. The penalty notice is for $2350 plus 6 demerit points.

Above: The vehicle was seized and the drivers licence suspended.

Above: Far South Coast Hwp also nabbed this overseas tourist for doing 96km/h in the 50 km/h zone in Cobargo, oh well, he gets a special "present" to take home with him to the value of $872. If it's a rental car, which they often are, the drivers are responsible for any infringements that get recorded against that vehicle. The rental companies go to great lengths to cover off on these issues, such as deposits, credit card details etc. Therefore the driver will have to square away these issues. They don't go away Photos: Traffic and Highway Patrol Command - NSW Police Force
