Moorabbin Highway Patrol detected two speedsters within hours of each other early this morning.

In the first instance, a 25-year-old man was detected travelling at an alleged speed of 132km/h in an 80km/h zone on Westall Street Clayton South about 1am this morning.

The Springvale man’s drivers’ licence will be suspended for 12 months.

Just over an hour later, the same Moorabbin Highway Patrol unit detected a vehicle on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway at Patterson Lakes allegedly travelling at 142km/h in a 100km/h zone.

The 21-year-old driver from Glen Waverley allegedly returned an evidentiary breath test reading of 0.145 per cent BAC, almost three times the legal limit of 0.049 per cent BAC.

His license was suspended immediately and he received two penalty notices: one for speeding and the other for drink-driving.

The two incidents form part of Operation Compass, a road policing operation aimed at keeping the community safe on Victorian roads.
