A Warrnambool highway patrol officer says recent cases of speeding drivers were troubling, particularly ahead of the busy Christmas period.
Leading Senior Constable Mark Kirby said a female driver aged in her 60s was clocked at 136 km/h on a bend in Mailors Flat on Thursday evening.
He said the motorist was observed travelling in the signed 100 km/h zone on Caramut Road.
"We saw it coming around the bend and knew it was fairly troubling," he said.
"That kind of speed is very dangerous. Even on a straight road that is particularly fast but around a bend really magnifies the danger."
The woman was intercepted, fined $591 and her licence was suspended for three months.
Leading Senior Constable Kirby said it came after a 25-year-old Warrnambool male was detected at 136 km/h in a signed 100 km/h zone following a heavy downpour on Tuesday.
He said the male was intercepted on Caramut Road in Warrnambool.
"Police members involved turned around to intercept the driver who carried on travelling fast into the 80 km/h zone," he said.
"He was already clocked at that speed in the 100 km/h zone but it was troubling that he had continued travelling fast, particularly because it was not long after a heavy downfall.
"That kind of speed in the wet is too fast."
Leading Senior Constable Kirby said there were also concerns of drivers not obeying the speed limit in school zones.
He said a handful of motorists had this week been fined for travelling at 55-60 km/h in 40km/h zones.
"It's just unacceptable," Leading Senior Constable Kirby said.
"We're urging motorists to drive to the conditions and obey the speed limits especially now that we'll be out and about during the busy Christmas period."
