Bailed Driver Caught Nearly Twice Speeding Limit


A 31-year-old Gungahlin man who was on parole and bail at the time of his arrest will face court after he was detected driving at 157km/h in a 80km/h zone.

About 11:00am  (Monday, 26 February 2024), Road Policing officers were conducting speed enforcement operations on Gungahlin Drive, Franklin when they observed a white Holden Commodore utility being driven at 156km/h in the posted 80km/h zone.

The Commodore was observed to weave in and out of traffic while police attempted to catch up to it.

Shortly after, the driver, a 31-year-old man from Gungahlin, stalled the vehicle and was apprehended by police. The Commodore utility was seized under road transport legislation.

The man is expected to face the ACT Magistrates Court charged with aggravated furious driving, exceeding the speed limit by more than 45km/h, failing to stop for police, drive while disqualified, breach of bail and breach of parole.

If any witnesses have dash-cam footage of the Commodore ute driving in the Gungahlin area shortly before 11am Monday, they are urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.
