An 18-year-old probationary driver has lost his licence after he was caught speeding just 45 minutes after passing his driving test.
Police said the Melbourne man was clocked travelling at 154 km/h in a 110 km/h zone on the Hume Freeway in Benella, north of Melbourne, at 4pm on Wednesday afternoon.
When asked why he was travelling at such a dangerous speed, the man told police his 20-year-old passenger was feeling unwell and the pair were in a rush to get home.
The driver lost his licence for six months and was fined $421, police said.
haha, fail. i've driven there before. apparently 110 isn't fast enough for some people. i'm so glad the cops caught him. clearly shouldn't have been given his license. dumbass.
