A learner driver has been stripped of his licence after he was clocked doing over 150km/h twice in two minutes on Albany Highway in August. Ahmad Farhad Attaee, 26, entered guilty pleas on September 20 before appearing in Albany Magistrates Court on Tuesday. He was faced with two charges of reckless driving speed of 155km/h or more, and one charge of contravening a learner’s permit. Police prosecutor Sgt Warrick Walker told the court Attaee was clocked twice near Cranbrook on August 8 while travelling in a Mazda C3 hatchback. The speed first captured was at 155km/h, and was clocked two minutes later on a different camera travelling at 159km/h in the same direction. It was discovered during a roadside stop shortly afterwards that he was also on a learner’s permit. Attaee not only travelled above the maximum State and learners speed, but also failed to display his L-plates. The maximum speed limit for drivers on a learner’s licence in WA is 100km/h. Magistrate Dianne Scaddan was astounded by the actions of Attaee, who she labelled a “novice driver”. “He must have been travelling at a sustained speed in order to be captured at nearly identical actions,” she said. “It beggars belief that people continue to do this. “I just can’t believe the stupidity of people. “They clearly don’t come across enough crashes to witness the consequences.” Attaee earned two six-month disqualifications to be served simultaneously with an eight-month disqualification. He was fined a total of $2,100.
