P-plater teen caught at 152 km/h

A teenager has had her car clamped and a court date set after she was caught doing more than 70 km/h over the speed limit.

Police nabbed the 19-year-old Ulverstone woman about 11pm yesterday during speed checks on the Bass Highway at Rocky Cape.

She was driving at 152 km/h.

She was a first-year P-plate driver, which carries a maximum speed limit of 80 km/h.

Her car has been clamped for 28 days and will appear in court at a later date, where she will face a minimum penalty of four months disqualification and a $900 fine.

Police took the opportunity to remind drivers who speed that they will get caught.
