Logan Police are continuing to enforce speed limits throughout the Logan District, after several motorists were intercepted exceeding the speed limit within just a few days in the Logan Village Yarrabilba Division, including one high end speed offence.
At 11.35am on July 30, officers from Logan Village Yarrabilba Station were patrolling the Buccan area when they allegedly saw a blue sedan travelling at high speed.
The officers activated their mobile radar which allegedly recorded the vehicle travelling at 128km/h in an 80km/h zone.
The driver, a 20-year-old Yarrabilba man was consequently intercepted and charged with high end speeding.
The man is due to appear at Beaudesert Magistrates Court on August 25.
This high end speeding offence was only a taste of things to come for Constable Craig Murley, who after also intercepting the motorists listed below, said road safety continues to be a focus within the division as speeding offences remain prevalent.
“Officers from Logan Village Yarrabilba Station will continue to provide a high visibility deterrent in an effort to curb traffic related offences,” Constable Murley said.
“Staying safe on our roads means obeying speed limits, whether it’s your first or hundredth time travelling that road.
“Speeding is one of the Fatal Five for a reason. Slow down so you can stay safe.”
On July 31, the driver of a black sedan, a 54-year-old Jimboomba man was intercepted, travelling at 102km/h in a 90km/h zone. He was issued a traffic infringement notice for $177 for exceeding the speed limit.
On Waterford Tamborine Road in Buccan, a 29-year-old Jimboomba man was issued a traffic infringement notice for exceeding the speed limit worth $266 for travelling at 97km/h in an 80km/h zone.

A 28-year-old Greenbank woman was intercepted, travelling at 102km/h in an 80km/h zone on Waterford Tamborine Road, Logan Village.
Both drivers were issued $444 traffic infringement notices.
The breakdown of these speeding offences may seem repetitive to you but that is the reality that Logan Police are facing on a daily basis.
Officer in Charge of Logan Village Yarrabilba Station, Sergeant Nathan Booth said that the police in the area will continue to enforce speed limits.
“We are forming part of a district-wide effort focusing on road safety,” Sergeant Booth said.
“These speeding offences only represent a small handful of what officers are seeing throughout the Logan District.
“We want motorists to know that speeding is putting lives at risk which is why we will continue to issue traffic infringement notices to those who make the choice to speed.”
