The male driver, who is a Canadian on a workers visa, was returning to the coast from Roma.
He admitted stopping at a hotel during his travels and consuming two beers before driving on.
Whilst stopped at the roadside another motorist stopped and alighted from his vehicle to fiercely complain about the driver overtaking him at such a speed.
Acting Assistant Commissioner Michael Keating, Road Policing Command is pleased that the local officer stopped this driver's irresponsible driving but said it was disappointing to see such dangerous behaviours on our roads during this busy holiday season.
"This is an example of what we do not want to see anywhere on a Queensland road.
"One of the fatal five behaviours is bad enough but a combination is absolutely dangerous and can be deadly," Assistant Commissioner Keating said.
