Motorbike caught at reckless speeds

A MAN will front Bellingen Local Court later this month after he was detected travelling at 200km/h in an 80km/h zone on his motorbike.

On Friday evening, police from the Mid North Coast Local Area Command were patrolling the Pacific Highway near Boambee as part of 'National Route 1,' an ongoing NSW Police Traffic and Highway Patrol operation targeting the Pacific Highway.

About 6.50pm, officers noticed a motorbike travelling south at excessive speed.

Police checked the vehicle's speed using a LIDAR instrument, which allegedly returned readings of up to 200 km/h - 120km/h over the sign-posted speed limit of 80km/h.

Officers stopped the motorcyclist, a 58-year-old from Nambucca Heads, and issued him with a field court attendance notice for speed/manner dangerous and exceed speed over 45km/h.

His licence was suspended on the spot and he will appear on Monday, June 25.

Superintendent Stuart Smith, Operations Commander of the NSW Police Force's Traffic and Highway Patrol Command, said police would continue to catch and charge motorists who flout the rules of the roads.

"Catching and taking reckless motorists off the state's roads continues to be a major priority for Traffic and Highway Patrol," he said. Superintendent Smith said.

"The fewer motorists who speed on our roads, the safer we all are."
