A WYRALLAH woman has made a bad start to the holidays.

Richmond Highway Patrol allege that on 6.45am Monday they saw a vehicle driving at a speed well over the posted limit on Wyrallah Road.

A radar check revealed the driver, a 30-year-old Wyrallah woman, was driving 100km/h in a 50km/h zone.

Richmond Highway Patrol want people to be aware they are out and about 24 hours a day 7 days a week. There are significant penalties for people who drive at excessive speeds.
