Police say it beggars belief that a motorist was allegedly clocked at 175km/h in the Mid West yesterday.
Mid West Gascoyne District Superintendent Mike Bell took to Twitter to praise Cue police for responding to the incident.
“175KPH in a 110KPH zone – it just defies belief!” he tweeted.
“@Cue_Pol keeping this driver safe and any road user in their vicinity.”
The 51-year-old Newman driver and his two adult passengers were pulled over on Great Northern Highway, about 30 kilometres north of Cue, about 1.30pm.
Asked to give a reason for his speed, he allegedly told Cue police: “I’m sorry, I was talking.”
Police charged the man with reckless driving and issued him with a surrender notice to have the car impounded for
