A lead-footed teen with no P-plates and unsecure load on the back of his ute will be walking into 2022.
The 19-year-old driver was clocked at 167km/h on the Sturt Highway at Borambola on Saturday, piquing the attention of Riverina highway patrol officers.
The highway is a 100km/h zone.
The Ford Ranger dual cab was stopped by police, who then deemed the vehicle unsafe due to the unsecured load in the tray.
P-plates were also missing from the ute.

The driver has been issued fines for exceeding the speed limit by more than 45km/h, driving with an unsecured load, not displaying P-plates and using an unsafe vehicle on the road.
His licence was suspended for six months.
The Ranger driver was one of hundreds of speeding offences detected in a two-day blitz on regional roads.
Even more people are expected to hit the bitumen as the state reopens this week, and the major easing of restrictions planned for December 1 is brought forward to Monday.
"It is disappointing to see that there are still so many drivers placing themselves and others at risk with their selfish and dangerous driving behaviours," NSW Police's southern region commander, Assistant Commissioner Joe Cassar said.
"With regional travel now open, it's a timely reminder that your destination will always be there.
"Slow down to ensure you and your loved ones arrive safely."
More than 500 people were booked for speeding in the blitz, while 89 drivers allegedly returned positive results in roadside drug tests.
