A WAGGA driver has been nabbed doing almost 60km/h above the speed limit on Sydney's roads at the weekend.
About 10.15pm on Saturday, Traffic and Highway Patrol Command officers noticed a Volkswagon GTI sedan allegedly travelling 138km/h in an 80km/h zone along the Bangor Bypass at Menai.
Police stopped the vehicle a short distance away and spoke to the 22-year-old man from Wagga, who was on his P-plates.
He was fined and his licence was suspended for six months.
The man was one of four others caught speeding to start the week in the state's capital, with one person caught twice in the same day, sparking officials to warn of the dangers on the road.

Commander of Traffic and Highway Patrol Command Assistant Commissioner Karen Webb said some drivers aren't getting the message.
"Speeding is not only illegal but selfish, as you're endangering the lives of your passengers and every road user," she said.
"Speeding is not worth the penalty or risking lives.
"Slow down, plan ahead and realise you're not above the law and will be caught."
