Dunedin police have slammed the ”beyond idiotic” actions of a motorcyclist caught riding at nearly 200km/h at the weekend.
Senior Sergeant Craig Dinnissen, of Dunedin, said the rider of the Aprilia motorcycle was caught travelling at 199km/h on State Highway 1 near Waihola on Saturday by a police speed camera van.
“That’s beyond idiotic,” Dinnissen said.
“I’d hate to have a guess at what your reaction time would have to be.”
Because the rider was travelling at more than 50kmh over the speed limit, they could face a licence suspension and charges of careless, dangerous or reckless driving.
Police inquiries were ongoing to locate the registered owner of the high performance Italian motorcycle and determine who was driving.
