A teenager on red P plates has been fined $622 after being caught doing 140km/h on the Wide Bay Highway.
Police pulled over the 17-year-old boy, from Kuluin on the Sunshine Coast, near Lower Wonga on May 22.
Police allege the Mitsubishi Mirage was detected at 140km/h in a 100km/h zone.
As well as the fine, the teenager lost six demerit points.
As he held a provisional licence, this resulted in him having to choose between a suspended licence or a good driving behaviour period.
