A teenage boy has been fined more than $3000 and almost a dozen demerit points after he was allegedly caught speeding twice in two hours on the NSW Far North Coast.
NSW police pulled over a red Ford Focus travelling north on the M1 Motorway at Gulmarrad, near Yamba, allegedly travelling up to 140km/hr in a 110km/hr zone just before 12:20pm on Monday.
Officers issued the 17-year-old P1 provisional licensed driver with a suspension notice and a traffic infringement.
He was granted a three-hour exemption to travel back to his home address in Tweed Heads.
Police then say about two hours later the 17-year-old was spotted allegedly travelling up to 163km/hr in a 110km/hr zone on the M1 Motorway at Tanglewood.
The driver was stopped again by police and issued another penalty notice for exceeding the speed limit by more than 45km/hr.
In total, the teen driver racked up $3455 in fines and 11 demerit points.
The Ford was parked at a safe location nearby and the teenager was directed to not drive further as his licence was suspended.
