MORE than 600 drivers were caught speeding in the ACT last February.
The highest proportion of drivers – 46 per cent – were caught speeding more than 15km/h but less than 30km/h.
Ninety-five drivers were caught speeding in school zones, including two drivers travelling between 30km/h and 45km/h over the 40km/h speed limit.
Another incident included a P-plate motorcyclist who was caught driving at 126km/h in a 60km/h zone on Northbourne Avenue. He was fined $1811 and faces the loss of six demerit points.
Officer-in-charge of Traffic Operations, Sgt Rod Andersons said the high number of motorists found speeding in school zones was particularly concerning for police.
“Speeding in school zones exposes some of the most vulnerable people in our community to the greatest risk; there is no excuse,” Sgt Anderson said.
This month ACT Policing will target drivers and passengers not wearing seatbelts.
