A 17-YEAR-OLD P-plate driver has had his licence suspended and been charged with dangerous driving after police clocked him travelling 100km/h over the speed limit along a quiet northern Sydney street.
The teen was allegedly caught travelling 160km/h along Boundary Rd in Roseville early yesterday - a speed nearly three times the limit.
``About 5.20am, members of Kuring-gai Highway Patrol had stopped at traffic lights where it will be alleged they were overtaken by a Mazda sedan travelling at high speed,'' police said in a statement.
``As police followed the car along Boundary Street at Roseville, the Mazda was detected travelling at an alleged speed of 160km/h in a sign-posted 60km/h area.''
The teenager driver, from Beacon Hill, had his P1 licence suspended on the spot, and police later charged him with dangerous driving and speeding.
He has been granted bail, and will appear at Hornsby Local Court on August 20.
