P Plater Loses Car and Licence


Police have seized the car of a p-plate driver travelling at more than 160km/h on the Tuggeranong Parkway.

On Tuesday (26 December 2023) ACT Road Policing officers were conducting speed enforcement activities on the Tuggeranong Parkway.

About 11.55am, they detected a black Ford Falcon sedan travelling at 167km/h in a signposted 90km/h zone.

The vehicle was stopped by police and a 19-year-old provisional driver was spoken with. His licence was immediately suspended and his vehicle was seized.

He will face court in 2024, charged with dangerous driving and exceeding the speed limit by greater than 45km/h.

Police urge all drivers to stick to the speed limit and drive to the conditions. Exceeding the speed limit greatly increases your chances of being involved in a collision and when excessive speed is detected, drivers risk immediate licence suspension and vehicle seizure.
