A motorcyclist who reportedly filmed himself doing a wheelie at 200 mph while overtaking cars on a highway has been fined more than $ 17,000.

The 27-year-old man was intercepted by police on Tuesday while driving his BMW motorcycle on the Sunshine Motorway near Maroochydore in Queensland.

Police seized footage from the man’s helmet camera, with the vision that he would capture a wheelie at 201 mph while overtaking cars in a 100 mph zone.

The man is also said to have filmed himself taking off and going through a red light, then doing a wheelie at 68 mph in a 60 mph zone.

Inspector Shane Panaho said the man’s alleged actions were ‘damn stupid’ and added ‘it’s a miracle he’s alive and still breathing’.

Police later raided the man’s home in Pacific Paradise and reportedly found a grow room for cannabis and eight adult plants.

The man is facing 43 dangerous driving and driving offenses after police view all of the footage on his camera.

He is also facing drug charges and will appear before Maroochydore Magistrates Court on May 10.

His fines of $ 17,500 include 17 for speeding. Three of them are for exceeding the speed limit by more than 40 km / h.

Inspector Panaho said the man’s alleged highway behavior was extremely reckless and disappointing, given the number of motorcyclists killed on Queensland roads this year.

“There are already 21 families whose loved ones have never returned home this year after being involved in road accidents,” he said.

‘The rider’s safety is everyone’s responsibility, but it starts with you as a rider. Your behavior along the way has direct consequences for your life and the people around you. ‘

The man’s alleged behavior came a day after another senior Queensland police officer said motorists were “arming” their vehicles by driving in ways that defied the conviction.

Acting Superintendent Ray Rohweder said Queensland was heading for its worst death toll in decades, pleading with road users to stop acting like idiots and end the massacre.

In 2019, 219 people died on Queensland’s roads. That rose to 276 last year, despite the coronavirus keeping people at home. This year, Supt Rohweder expects the figure to reach 300.
