Raywood’s streets are safer, after police caught a driver travelling 98 kilometres per hour in a 40 zone on Friday morning.
And it’s all thanks to the crime-fighting community.
Senior Constable Marcus Uren was monitoring drivers’ speed on the main street of Raywood after community members had voiced their concerns about speeding
It was 8.10am when he clocked a driver travelling at a whopping 58 kilometres per hour over the speed limit.
Once police had observed the driver’s speed, he was intercepted. The Melbourne man will be charged by summons at a later date with driving at a dangerous speed and driving while disqualified.
The driver’s car was also impounded.
Senior Constable Uren said this driver had been apprehended as a result of the concerns the community had voiced about speeding in the town.
He said it was important the community know they could come to police with anything that’s on their mind.
“Anything’s small that’s on their mind, they should not hesitate in letting the police know,” he said.
