P-plater busted at 134km/h - in dad's ute

A late-night drive in his father's utility has cost this P-plater dearly.

Police detected the 18-year-old Carrum Downs man driving on Wedge Road, Carrum Downs just before 10pm on Sunday, at 134km/h in a 60km/h zone, a police spokesman said.

Officers from the Frankston highway patrol have released the man pending summons. He is expected to be charged with several traffic offences, including driving at dangerous speed.

The spokesman said that the man's father's Ford ute was not impounded because of "extenuating circumstances".
