A P-Plater has earned himself $1458 in fines as well as a court appearance after being intercepted by police on the Sunshine Coast on Saturday night.

It will be alleged that at 7.45pm on July 27 a utility was detected travelling at 158 kilometres per hour in a 90 zone on Maroochydore Road through Forest Glen.

The vehicle was pulled over by an officer from Nambour Road Policing Unit who then conducted a Roadside Drug Test on the 23-year-old driver from Peregian Springs which returned a positive result.

The man was issued with a fine of $1245 for high range speeding with his licence suspended – and to add insult to injury a further $213 fine for failing to display P Plates.

Following subsequent analysis of the drug test the man was also issued with a Notice To Appear for drug driving at Maroochydore Magistrates Court on September 29.

Officer in Charge of Nambour RPU Senior Sergeant Shane Panaho said the driver had endangered his life and the lives of all other road users by committing two of the FATAL FIVE contributors to serious and fatal crashes.

"Unfortunately there is an increasing prevalence of road user willing to flaunt road rules and expose themselves and others to loss of life or serious injury," Senior Sergeant Panaho said.

"Police can only do so much, if you have a driver in your family you know is using the road as a race track, you need to have a conversation with them to change their driving behaviour before you no longer can," he said.
