A teenager has been issued over $1200 in fines and will be disqualified from driving for 3 months after being intercepted in Yarrambat this morning.

Police from Greensborough Highway Patrol intercepted a Toyota Hilux after it was detected travelling at 91km/h in a 60 zone on Ironbark road just before 10am.

The driver, an 18-year-old Doreen man returned a roadside breath test of .047.

Matters only got worse for the teen when it was revealed his P1 probationary licence had expired.

He was issued with three penalty infringement notices for drink driving, speeding, and unlicensed driving, at a total cost of $1280.

This intercept forms part of Operation Compass, a road policing operation aimed at keeping the community safe on Victorian roads.

Police continue to use an intelligence-based approach to target locations and major arterials law-breaking drivers are expected to be, as people from metro Melbourne head to regional Victoria. This includes behaviour such as speeding, drink and drug driving, people not wearing seatbelts, mobile phone use and fatigue.
