An interstate motorcycle rider has been caught travelling more than 45km/h over the speed limit in a single-lane area.
Police said Narrandera Highway Patrol officers were conducting high-visibility patrols along the Irrigation Way, Cudgel, when they detected a black Yamaha motorcycle travelling at 155 km/h in a signposted 100 km/h zone on Wednesday, 1 November.
The rider was stopped and subjected to a breath test, which returned a negative reading.
When police questioned the rider about his speed, he told them: “I’m running late for the bank.”
As a result, the rider was issued with an infringement notice for exceeding the speed limit by more than 45km/h, fined $2794 and accrued six demerit points.
He had his riding privileges in NSW withdrawn for six months and had his registration confiscated for three months.
