Perth Driver Fined For Going Too Slow On Freeway
A Perth driver has been fined for not going fast enough along the Mitchell Freeway.
The Toyota Landcruiser was stopped near Hepburn Avenue in Greenwood on Monday night after the driver was clocked doing 28 km/h under the 100 km/h speed limit - or 72 km/h.
While the offence didn’t attract any demerit point penalty, they did cop a $50 fine for driving on the freeway at 21 km/h or more under the speed limit.
Driving 28kmh under the speed limit on the freeway causes frustration which results in bad decisions which results in accidents. Can't do the limit stay off the freeway! #TEG3 pic.twitter.com/JvWDudvWrP— WA Police Traffic (@WAPoliceTraffic) January 14, 2019
The response on social media has been pretty positive, with many wanting more action against slow drivers.
Yay finally hope this is going to be the start of more to come ✅✅👍👍— Andrew (@drewtrucker550) January 14, 2019
If the Police were to spend a day on the freeway they will need a lot more ticket books!— Ken Excited (@appsy31) January 15, 2019
Really wish this would happen more down south here, it's painfully annoying driving to Busselton with people doing 80 in the 110 zone for no reason.— Ray Herring (@ray73864) January 15, 2019
This is a rarity. Unfortunately it will remain a rarity.— Robert Mitchell (@dickenciderr) January 14, 2019
