Motorcyclist fined $1,000 for 56mph speed
A motorcyclist was fined almost $1,000 after he admitted two speeding offences.
The court heard that Jahkhari Hollis, 21, was clocked by police at 91km/h, or 56mph, on Middle Road, Southampton, on May 23.
He was caught again a week later riding at 65km/h.
The legal speed limit is 35km/h.
Hollis, who admitted both offences, told the court: “I was trying to get home.”
Magistrate Maxanne Anderson fined Hollis $610 for the 91km/h speeding charge and $350 for the 65km/h speeding charge.
