A 48-year-old NSW man caught driving 30km/h over the speed limit on Sunday morning hadn't had a licence in the state since 1991.

NSW Police said the man, who was also wanted on two outstanding warrants, was detected driving at 140km/h in a 110km/h zone on the Hume Highway near Gundagai.

When he was pulled over, the man had flicked a lit cigarette out the window despite it having been a high-fire danger area.

He appeared in a Wagga Wagga court on Sunday the two warrants and charged with driving while suspended. He was granted bail and will face court again on January 6.

NSW Police have issued about 9000 speeding fines since they began Operation Safe Arrival, the force's annual Christmas and New Year's traffic-enforcement campaign.

Police issued 720 speeding infringement notices on Sunday.

NSW Police Traffic and Highway Patrol Commander, Assistant Commissioner John Hartley said police were disappointed by the number of drivers who continued to engage in risky behaviour.

The Safe Arrival campaign runs until January 2.
