Members of the Greensborough Highway Patrol were busy yesterday impounding three vehicles and catching four suspected speeding motorists.

Officers were patrolling as part of Operation Compass when they intercepted a Hyundai Kona type reportedly traveling 114 km / h in a 70 km / h zone on Yang Yea Road in Plenty around 6:30 p.m. on October 31.

The driver, an 18-year-old man from southern Morang who had only had his provisional license for a month, received a speeding violation notice and his license was immediately suspended for six months.

Barely 15 minutes later, on the same stretch of road, a Chrysler 300 was reportedly clocked at 119 km / h.

A 28-year-old man from Mernda had his vehicle confiscated for 30 days and will be charged on summons for speeding.

Earlier in the evening, a Kawasaki motorcycle reportedly traveled 114 km / h in a 60 km / h zone on Oherns Road in Epping before being pulled over by police around 4:30 p.m.

The biker, a 20-year-old man from Wollert, had his motorcycle confiscated for 30 days and will be charged on summons for speeding.

A Subaru WRX was also caught traveling 99 km / h in a 50 km / h zone on Taryn Drive in Epping.

The driver, a 22-year-old man from Moonee Ponds, had his vehicle confiscated for 30 days and will be charged on summons for speeding.

The impoundments are part of Operation Compass, a statewide traffic policing operation that coincides with the Melbourne Cup weekend and the easing of travel restrictions.

Police target speed, distraction, fatigue and impaired driving in high-risk areas of the Melbourne metropolis and the Victoria region.

Operation Compass runs until Sunday, November 7, 2021 at 11:59 p.m.
