Biker overtakes police at 228kmh

POLICE cannot believe the audacity of a motorcyclist who overtook a squad car on the Pacific Highway at break-neck speeds.

The rider, a 30-year-old man, was clocked at 228kmh near Eungai Creek on Saturday night.

A police spokesman said Mid North Coast Highway patrol officers were headed south on the highway about 11.40pm when the motorcycle flew into view and overtook the police car.

In-car police speed radars revealed he was travelling 128km/h over the highway speed limit.

Police followed the speeding biker and caught up with him after their sirens were activated.

His licence was suspended on the spot.

The Eungai Rail local was issued with a field court attendance notice for driving in a speed/manner dangerous to the public.

He will appear in Macksville Local Court on March 11.
