The 38-year-old man, from Dublin in the state’s lower north, was yesterday formally reported for offences including dangerous driving, excessive speeding and failing to truthfully answers questions.
Police said the Gypsy Joker gang member was driving a Ford Mustang along Port Wakefield Road at Two Wells on November 7 when he was detected speeding at 227 kph.
The man has had his car impounded and lost his licence for six months.
Police said the man would be summonsed to appear at Elizabeth Magistrates Court.
Yesterday, police launched a campaign targeting drug driving, partly in response to last year’s high death toll on South Australian roads.
In 2019, 113 people were killed — the highest toll in nine years — including 12 people aged under 20.
Police said almost a quarter of fatal crashes involved drugs, and the new campaign aims to counter that trend.
“We don’t want to see a repeat of last year’s number of lives lost, so we are starting the year with a new campaign aimed specifically at drug driving,” Superintendent Bob Gray said.
“Road users can expect to see these ads appear on TV, radio, as well as on billboards throughout the state starting from this Sunday.”
Last year’s road deaths included 21 pedestrians and 17 motorcyclists.
More than 700 people were seriously injured.
