Speed­ing mo­tor­cy­clist fined $750

Tablelands Advertiser - - NEWS -

A MAN who was trav­el­ling 25km/hr over the le­gal speed limit and failed to pull over when given di­rec­tion by po­lice, has been handed a $750 fine and no crim­i­nal con­vic­tion recorded on his his­tory.

Po­lice were con­duct­ing pa­trols along the Kennedy High­way, Koah, on Septem­ber 14, in an un­marked ve­hi­cle when they recorded Bren­ton Les Hielscher trav­el­ling at 125km/hr in a 100km/re zone on his mo­tor­bike.

Po­lice ac­ti­vated their lights and sirens to in­ter­cept Hielscher but he failed to pull over.

Smith­field po­lice then in­ter­cepted Hielscher and he claimed he didn’t hear the sirens due to his noise re­duc­tion hel­met and he “didn’t no­tice the po­lice car be­hind him”.

Pro­sec­tor Sergeant Karen Equinox told it was “un­ac­cept­able that he didn’t see po­lice in his rear view mir­rors”.

Hielscher was charged with dis­obey­ing the speed limit and drive with­out due care and at­ten­tion.
