ALMOST 80,000 speeding motorists have been clocked by a single fixed speed camera on Perth's Mitchell Freeway since it was first trialled in December.
After the 12-day trial - during which 20,000 speeding motorists were snapped - Perth's first freeway fixed speed camera has caught 78,723 vehicles travelling over the 100km/h speed limit, according to police figures released today.
While most were only marginally over the limit, with 75,200 caught doing less than 110km/h, at least one motorist in the past week was clocked at 213kmh and another at 159km/h seconds later.
``That obviously gives us an indication that cars are racing on the freeway, which gives us great concern,'' Assistant Police Commissioner Gary Budge said.
So far, 36 motorists have been caught travelling at more than 45km/h above the limit, meaning they could have their vehicles seized under so-called ``anti-hoon law'' legislation.
