More than 200 offences recorded across south-west
More than 200 offences were recorded across the district as part of Operation Nexus 2021, held over the Easter weekend.
Speeding accounted for nearly 50% of overall offences. Of which, two drivers were caught exceeding the speed limit in Codrington.
Portland Sergeant Ryan Nelson said, “We had one South Australian driver probably doing 149km/h in a 100km/h zone in Codrington. His vehicle will be impounded at a later time and he’ll receive a summons in the mail as well. Also had another driver doing 130km/h in Codrington … and that was a Melbourne driver.”
The driver detected at 149km/h was traveling with an adult passenger and 3 young children in the vehicle. He was issued with a $826 dollar fine and will be disqualified from driving for a period of 12 months.
