A young driver will be off the road for the next four months after being caught travelling at twice the speed limit in Cressy yesterday.

The 20-year-old driver was behind the wheel of a white Ford utility when officers on patrol caught him driving at 100km/h in the 50km/h zone at around 2:30pm on Sunday.

Sergeant Ben Kromkamp said it was disappointing to see the driver put the lives of pedestrians and other road users at risk by disregarding speed limits, particularly in built up areas.

“Tasmania Police would like to remind motorists that our patrols are conducted all over the state, including highways, rural roads and country areas,” he said.

“You can continue expect to see us anywhere, anytime targeting the ‘Fatal Five’ to help keep people safe on our roads.”

The driver was issued an on-the-spot fine of $1121.15, received six demerit points and has been disqualified from driving until June.
