Speeding Motorcyclist


A learner motorcyclist from Queanbeyan, NSW will be summonsed to face the ACT Magistrates Court after being detected travelling at almost 170km/h.

About 6.40pm on Sunday, 17 December 2023, ACT Road Policing were conducting speed enforcement on the Majura Parkway when they detected the 20-year-old man riding at 167km/h in the signposted 100km/h zone.

The man was stopped by police and issued with an immediate suspension notice, suspending his right to drive in the ACT for 90 days.

His motorcycle, a Yamaha R7, was also seized due to exceeding the posted speed limit by more than 45km/h.

The man will be summonsed to face court at a later date, where he is expected to face driving charges and possibly licence disqualification, which would suspend his right to drive anywhere in Australia.

With double demerits beginning on Friday, 22 December ahead of the busy Christmas/New Year/school holiday period, police would again urge drivers to slow down, obey the road rules – including posted speed limits, and drive to the conditions.
