GOLD COAST MOTORIST ALLEGEDLY POSTS 162KM/H IN A 100KM/H ZONE

A motorist has allegedly been recorded speeding at more than 60km/h over the limit on the Gold Coast, as the festive break continues across Queensland.

Police have issued almost 1,400 speeding infringement notices as part of the road safety campaign.

Police allege one motorist was caught travelling at 162km/h in a 100km/h zone on the Pacific Motorway at Carrara, while another was recorded at 128km/h in an 80km/h zone on the Cunningham Highway at Tarome, west of the Gold Coast.

A further 56 drivers have been charged with drink driving after police conducted more than 12,300 Random Breath Tests on Good Friday.

In one incident, a 50-year-old woman allegedly returned a roadside breath test reading of 0.277 percent, after crashing a car into a seafood business on Rio Vista Boulevard at Broadbeach Waters on the Gold Coast yesterday.

Police say the woman was sitting outside the crash scene consuming a tray of hot chips when they arrived.

She is expected to be charged with drink driving, and driving unlicensed.
