A p-plate driver was allegedly caught travelling at 158 kilometres per hour in a 110km speed zone at Raymond Terrace yesterday.

Police were conducting patrols on the Pacific Highway, when they detected the vehicle allegedly travelling above the speed limit around 2.30pm.

Police stopped the car and spoke to the 21-year-old driver before issuing him a fine for exceeding the speed limit by more than 45kmh. His drivers licence was immediately suspended.

Traffic Services Branch Operations Commander Superintendent Stuart Smith said the fine for exceeding the speed limit by more than 45kmh was $1915.

In another incident, shortly after 4pm, a 16-year-old male driver was stopped on the F3 at Berowra after police noticed the passenger was not wearing a seatbelt.

Police found that the driver and his front-seat passenger only held learners permits. A passenger in the back of the car held a current NSW licence.

The boy was reported for being an unaccompanied learner driver, not displaying ‘L’ plates, and driving with an unrestrained passenger. His licence was suspended.

Police said both incidents were a reminder to stick to the speed limit and to wear a seat belt.
