According to Police, a 22 year-old male provisional driver from Macquarie Fields in Sydney's West has been clocked doing 202 Kph (125 Mph) in a 110 Kph (68 Mph) speed zone. In New South Wales provisional drivers are limited to a maximum of 100 Kph (62 Mph) regardless of the actual road's limit.

The driver was detected by a highway patrol officer who was carrying out radar duties along the Hume Highway at Mittagong, South of Sydney.

Police also discovered after stopping the man that his driver's licence had already been suspended. He was subsequently charged with driving whilst suspended and dangerous speeding.
