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.”

Sergeant Ryan Nelson said it is important to remain alert and advises drivers to take their time travelling to their destinations, especially during this school holiday period.

“Just be patient, there’s a lot of cars on the roads, a lot of caravans a lot of boats. As soon as you overtake one caravan, you’re going to come up behind another one, so just give yourself an extra 20 minutes, half an hour travel time, and just enjoy the drive, relax and be patient.”

Over the weekend there were five deaths on roads across the state.
