Hoon driver caught at more than 200km/h
A SPEEDING hoon driver has been clocked at more than 200km/h this morning on the Monash freeway.
Police were stunned when they detected a Holden Commodore travelling at 207km/h down the Monash Freeway in Dandenong North.
Highway patrol officers were using laser speed detection on the freeway between EastLink and Stud Rd when they detected the vehicle travelling a 100km zone at 1.10am, police spokesman Luke Zammit said.
The driver, a 23-year-old Endeavour Hills man, had his car impounded under hoon laws at a cost of $1093.
He was arrested after police caught up to and intercepted his Holden on Heatherton Road.
It comes as a motorbike rider was nabbed doing more than double the speed limit at Ballarat Rd near Moore St in Footscray yesterday morning.
The 29-year-old North Melbourne man told police he was on his way to work.
Both men are expected to be charged on summons with a range of offences including speeding.
