In one recent incident, a silver Holden Sedan and a Black Holden Sedan were detected travelling at 135km/hr in a 60 zone, both vehicles appeared to be racing one another.

Both drivers aged 17 were fined nearly $2500 and lost 9 demerit points each.

Detective Inspector Marcus Boorman says he baffled these young drivers thought this kind of reckless behaviour was acceptable.
