A man is facing charges after police allege he was caught travelling at 200 kilometres per hour on a road in Tasmania’s north.

Police intercepted the high-overall performance V8 car on Mole Creek Road near Deloraine last week.

The road is a 100kph zone.

Sergeant Tony Roughan from Tasmania Police stated it was hazardous to travel that quickly.

“Clearly reaction time, you are not going to be in a position to react to anything,” he mentioned.

“There had been tractors on the road at the time baling hay, you know, it could be a auto coming out of a driveway not expecting a car to be travelling at that speed, so yeah it was a silly thing to do,” he mentioned.

The car has been clamped for 1 month and the driver will be charged with speeding offences.

“As a outcome of the incident the car has been clamped for 28 days, so these individuals won’t have their high-functionality automobile more than Christmas and the New Year,” Sergeant Roughan said.

“We would anticipate that upon a guilty conviction he’ll be disqualified for some time.”

Sergeant Roughan said he believed a prospective crash would have dire consequences when driving so fast over the speed limit.

“At that speed if an animal walks onto the road or a child or a vehicle does a U-turn, or a tractor comes out of a driveway, or it gets a puncture, the resulting incident could be important,” he stated.

Police mentioned the driver stopped quickly when approached.

Former speaker Bronwyn Bishop spent far more than $ 50,000 on a country-hopping South American trip earlier this year.

Mrs Bishop resigned as speaker in August following weeks of pressure over her taxpayer-funded expenditure.

New documents reveal she travelled to Ecuador, Peru and Argentina between January ten-25 this year.

Four other MPs and senators have been portion of a delegation that travelled to Ecuador and Peru for the Asia Pacific Parliamentary Forum.

Mrs Bishop travelled to Argentina with out other members of the group.

The other four charged taxpayers much less than $ 24,000 every.

The most current expenditure report for MPs and senators showed $ 32,046.28 was spent on airfares and $ 12,625.35 on accommodation and meals, whilst the total expense was $ 52,700.62.

Mrs Bishop’s office has been contacted for comment.

Earlier this year it was revealed she spent a lot more than $ 5,000 chartering a helicopter from Melbourne to Geelong in November to attend a Liberal Celebration fundraiser.

The expenditure report, released right now, showed she continued to charter aircraft after the notorious November helicopter trip.

On March six this year, $ four,100 was spent on a return trip to Port Macquarie, where she attended the Hastings Heroine Awards — an occasion recognising regional women leaders.

No direct flights are obtainable among Canberra and Port Macquarie, but the journey can take significantly less than 3 hours flying by way of Sydney.
