Another week and another driver allegedly caught speeding at more than 50km/h over the speed limit in the Great Southern.

Wagin Police clocked a driver at 165km/h in a 110km/h zone on the Great Southern Highway.

They allege there were four passengers in the Holden Commodore.

It follows a spate of similar charges on Great Southern highways in recent weeks.

A Perth man has had his car impounded and will appear in court after police allege he was clocked travelling at 160km/h on Albany Highway in Kojonup last Tuesday.

Williams police recorded the hired silver Kia Sorento travelling 50km/h over the posted 110km/h speed limit near the Kojonup airstrip just before 2pm on Tuesday.

The man will face a charge of reckless driving at the Katanning Magistrate’s Court at the end of January and the vehicle will be impounded for 28 days.

It comes as Wagin police charged four motorists with travelling more than 30km/h over the speed limit on the same day.

Last month, an L-plater driver was allegedly clocked at 164km/h on Albany Highway near Williams, one of several drivers police have charged with excessive speeding recently, while a P-plate driver was also charged with speeding on the same section of road.
