A MOUNT Gambier man who was witnessed “street racing” at almost twice the legal speed on Penola Road received a suspended sentence in court on Tuesday.
Paul Keith Walker, 34, appeared in the Mount Gambier Magistrates Court to be sentenced for driving at dangerous speed.
The prosecution said a witness captured footage on their dashboard camera of Walker driving on Penola Road at around 12pm on September 13, 2016.
Footage showed the defendant travelling at speeds exceeding 110kph in a 60kph zone.
The witness said it appeared Walker was street racing, however the defendant’s lawyer said his client denied he was ever racing.
