Police seeking man driving 180km/h along Calder Freeway

A speedy motorist travelling at 180km/h along the Calder Freeway yesterday is being sought by police.

A traffic unit from Kyneton police recorded the vehicle travelling at speeds of more than 180km/h heading north toward Elphinstone about midday yesterday.

The police unit chose not to pursue the vehicle out of safety concerns. 

Sergeant Mick Peckham from Castlemaine Police said inquiries were pending to track down the vehicle and the location of the driver.

“The vehicle would be impounded and comes with a substantial fine and lengthy loss of licence period for that sort of speed.” 

He said it was a reminder for motorists to be aware of the dangers of speeding in the lead-up to Christmas and New Year.  

During the current Operation RAID, Sergeant Peckham said Central Victorian police would target motoring offences.

“People can expect to see an enforcement of more laws in relation to speeding, drink driving, all those things,” he said.
