On Monday, April 26 at around 3:30pm, a State Traffic Enforcement Motorcycle member was conducting rural traffic policing duties when they allegedly detected a Nissan Pulsar travelling on Old Swanport Road at 140km/h in an 80km/h zone.

Once the 17-year old local teen was finally stopped, they were issued with a $2222 fine for speeding and breaching their P plate conditions.

They also lost their license on the spot for six months.

State Traffic Enforcement Section's Sergeant Watts said "It is fortunate that police detected, intercepted and put a stop to this young mans selfish and dangerous driving behaviour which could have led to a serious injury or fatal crash."

"State Traffic Enforcement Motorcycle officers will continue to maintain a strong visual presence on South Australian roads to prevent and detect dangerous driving behaviour across the State," Sergeant Watts said.
