Speeding offences at Gold Coast

Information provided by members of the public has led to police impounding a luxury vehicle and issuing infringement notices to three people for speeding offences on the Gold Coast.

Between August 22 and August 28 police received three separate reports in relation to a yellow Lamborghini reportedly travelling at high speed.

Further enquiries led to police executing a search warrant on September 22 at a Paradise Point apartment complex where they seized the car.

Investigations led to a 25-year-old Paradise Point woman receiving an infringement notice for allegedly travelling along the Gold Coast Highway in Miami at 123kph in a 70kph zone on August 22.

A 35-year-old Paradise Point man received an infringement notice for allegedly travelling 120kph in a 70kph zone on Marine Parade, Biggera Waters, around 10am on August 26. He was also issued a fine for using a mobile phone while driving.

Finally, a 33-year-old Paradise Point man was issued an infringement notice for allegedly travelling 124kph in a 50kph zone on August 28 on Thrush Avenue, Paradise Point.

As the speeds were more than 40kph over the speed limit, each driver will receive a six-month licence suspension.

Road Policing Investigations Unit Acting Sergeant Deb McDougall urged drivers to seriously consider the consequences their actions may have when they get behind the wheel.

“When you are driving a car you are in control of an object that has the potential to end lives in the blink of an eye.

“We’ve seen a significant increase in road fatalities across the state already this year. There is no such thing as safe speeding – speeding kills.

“Police officers urge their fellow community members to follow the road rules. They are there for a reason, and that reason is to keep people safe.

“It cannot be overstated the potential devastating impact of driving behaviour such as what is alleged to have occurred.”
