The 18-year-old Lalor woman, who had her younger brother and sister in the car with her, was issued a $620 infringement notice and her licence was suspended for six months.
The second incident took place on the Metropolitan Ring Road when a driver’s speed was checked at 131km/h in a 100 zone at 3.30am.
