Court date for man speeding at 219km/h

A MAN was caught allegedly travelling at 219 kilometres-an-hour on the Pacific Highway south of Port Macquarie this week.

At about 12.05am Wednesday morning Manning-Great Lakes Highway Patrol detected a Ford ute speeding at more than double the speed limit. 

Officers eventually caught up to the vehicle and stopped it at Moorland before speaking to the driver.
