A taxi allegedly speeding at 152km/h on the Mitchell Freeway on-ramp was impounded by police in the early hours of this morning.
Officers from the Traffic Enforcement Group were conducting speed detection duties on the Mitchell Freeway northbound on-ramp in Warwick about 3.45am when they detected a taxi travelling at high speed, a police spokesman said.
"The police officers managed to catch up to the taxi at the Burns Beach Road intersection, and it will be further alleged the vehicle accelerated up to 125km/hr in the 80km/hr speed zone," police said.
"The officers activated their emergency lights and stopped the taxi near Joondalup Drive."
The taxi was impounded for 28 days and the 25-year-old male driver will be summonsed for reckless driving.
"At the time of the alleged offence there were three passengers on board the taxi, and due to the time of night and location of the vehicle stop, arrangements were made for local police to take the passengers the rest of the way home," the police spokesman said.
