TWO men will have their vehicles impounded after both were caught speeding on Indian Ocean Dr on Sunday afternoon.
WA Police said traffic enforcement officers from the regional enforcement unit intercepted two vehicles travelling in excess of 160km/hr about 4.15pm while conducting patrols in Nilgen.
A police spokeswoman said it will be alleged the officers detected a Toyota Crown being driven at 177km/h.
The vehicle was intercepted and a few seconds later it will be alleged a second vehicle, a Ford Ranger utility, was detected travelling at 166km/h in the same direction.
The second vehicle was also stopped.
The two drivers – a 23-year-old man from the Perth metropolitan area who was driving the Ford and a 20-year-old man from the Perth metropolitan area who was driving the Toyota – were both advised they would be charged by summons for reckless driving.
Both vehicles will be impounded for 28 days.
Due to the remote location they were stopped in both drivers were issued surrender notices, meaning the vehicles have to be surrendered within seven days.
She said the regional enforcement unit continued to conduct daily patrols of key arterial roads leading in and out of the metropolitan area, with a focus on the 400km ‘arc of influence’ from Perth.
Additional patrols were also conducted further into regional WA as part of random and targeted operations.
