Police Catch Driver during Operation Safe Speed


Police from the Murray Mallee Local Service area are disappointed with the actions of a driver, caught speeding in the region.

Just after 1pm last Wednesday police detected an 18yr old from Murray Bridge travelling 162KPH in a 110KPH zone on the Karoonda highway near Mindarie.

Inspector Cindy Healey of Traffic Support Branch said “It is disappointing that during Operation Safe Speed, the week when police are specifically focusing on speeding vehicles that some drivers continue to place not only themselves but other drivers at risk of serious injury or death by exceeding the speed limit by a significant amount”

The driver was issued with a $1522 fine and as well as losing her licence on the spot for 6 months.
