The speed that shook a Kingaroy police van

A SOUTH Burnett driver's speed was so excessive the police speed camera van shook as the car passed.

The Kingaroy man will lose his licence for six months after he was caught driving 147km/h in a 100km/h zone on Kingaroy-Cooyar Rd at Goodger on Tuesday afternoon.

The Kingaroy Road Policing Unit detected the speed and revealed the vehicle's speed shook the speed camera van the officer was sitting in. 

In addition to losing his licence for six months, the man will soon be receiving a $1245 fine and accumulate eight demerit points.

This offence was committed on the second day of Queensland Road Safety week, an initiative of the Queensland Police Service and the Department of Transport and Main Roads to remind motorists to put road safety first in order to help reduce the number of fatalities on the state's roads.
