Police have charged a 24-year-old Morayfield man after he was allegedly detected travelling at 195 kph in a 100 kph zone on Dayboro Road at Dayboro on Sunday afternoon.
It will be alleged that around 4.10 pm a solo motorcycle rider was travelling along the Dayboro Road, Kurwongbah when police using stationary radar equipment allegedly heard the motorcycle travelling towards them at excessive speed.
Police radar allegedly detected the bike travelling 95km over the speed limit.
Senior Sergeant Shane Draper, Officer in Charge of the Pine Rivers Traffic Branch, said the Pine Rivers Traffic Branch would continue to police country roads and reminds riders and drivers that they can be caught anywhere and at any time.
“I cannot believe some people are not getting the message that speed kills especially considering motorcyclists have an over representation in fatalities for the Metro North Police Region. The consequences of a crash at this speed are life ending – no amount of rider safety equipment could be expected to protect a rider from the forces of impact that would result,” said Senior Sergeant Draper.
The 24-year-old is due to appear before the Pine Rivers Magistrates Court on the August 27.
