A JIMBOOMBA man has had his licence suspended after a motorcycle speeding incident on Easter Saturday which police said was absurd.
The man was clocked at 134km/h in a 90km/h zone on the Mount Lindesay Highway at Park Ridge South.
Police said the man in his 50s was going too quickly for a motorcycle officer to pursue safely. His fine was instead sent in the mail.
The man, who was riding a high-powered bike, will lose his licence for six months. He has also been handed eight demerit points after the incident which happened at 8.30am.
"That's absurd, and putting a lot of people at risk," Sergeant Rob Duncan said.
"In someone over 50, their brain is meant to be fully developed. I'd question if it is. How could he possibly be, at that speed, safe on the road."
It comes weeks after police launched a campaign to target motorcyclists after an alarming trend of deaths on the roads.
As of March 25, 21 riders had lost their lives on the state's roads, the highest number in the past five years.
"How much more have we got to do to stop people dying from this sort of stuff," Sergeant Duncan said.
Jimboomba police issued 34 tickets to motorists over the Easter weekend.
Sergeant Duncan said officers were pleased that there were no fatalities over that period.
