A Nepalese man has been caught allegedly driving almost 90km/h over the speed limit in Sydney's western suburbs.

The 24-year-old had his driving privileges suspended after he was detected by officers about 8am on Saturday.

Police say he was driving a black BMW sedan at speeds up to 187km/h in a 100km/h zone on the M4 Motorway at Erskine Park.

He is due to appear in Penrith Local Court on January 28.

As NSW police continue their state-wide road safety operation a P1-licence holder was detected driving at 66km/h over the speed limit on the Hume Highway at Holbrook about 1.30pm on Saturday.

It's alleged the 24-year-old woman was driving at 156km/h in a 90km/h zone.

She was issued with a $2520 fine and 12 demerit points. Her drivers' licence was also suspended for six months and registration plates seized for three months.

Another P1 driver was caught driving at an alleged speed of more than 110km/h in an 80km/h zone on the M5 at Riverwood about 6.30am on Saturday.

The 27-year-old man was charged with breaching his bail conditions after returning a positive roadside drug test.

The driver of a Jeep who allegedly tried to avoid a random breath test site at Rouse Hill just after midnight on Saturday was charged with driving and other offences after police caught up with him nearby.

The 32-year-old man returned a positive roadside drug test, before officers allegedly found about $7000 when they searched him and his vehicle.

He was charged with dealing with proceeds of crime and having goods in personal custody suspected of being stolen.

He was granted conditional bail to appear in Parramatta Local Court on February 3.

Police have issued 8610 speeding fines and 7944 infringement notices for driving offences since the operation started on Christmas Eve.
