Hoon is caught racing with his roommate at over 200 km / h with three passengers in the car – but he is NOT banned from driving because of a ridiculous loophole
- Rizwan Sekhon was caught while traveling at 203 km / h in a 100 km / h zone in Sydney
- The Indian driver was allowed to continue driving because he was not in possession of an NSW driver's license
- Legal loophole allows foreign drivers to ignore P-plate rules and avoid fines
A joon born in India who drove more than 200 km / h and drove through a red light was allowed to keep his driving license due to a dangerous legal back door.
Rizwan Sekhon ran down the busy M2 of Sydney with more than double the speed limit with his roommate and three other passengers on board.
But the 20-year-old will not be banned because of a legal loophole allowing foreign license holders to avoid the same penalties that are given to drivers in New South Wales.

Sekhon moved to Australia two years ago and was caught last year for speeding and a red light, a violation that cost him 11 penalty points.
But because he didn't have an NSW driver's license, which he would see on his green PS, Sekhon was able to continue driving.
NSW drivers have registered points against their driver's license, but foreign drivers have registered it at their address, making it more difficult for NSW Transport to check.
More than 22,000 infringements were committed to foreign motorists last year.
Sekhon pleaded guilty to three charges in court with Magistrate Andrew Miller who said he & # 39; the community, endangered everyone & # 39 ;, 9 news reported.
He said he was planning to get an NSW permit.

Peter Khoury, an NRMA spokesperson, said the loophole was extremely dangerous and needed to be closed immediately.
& # 39; If there is a loophole in our legislation that allows a person to continue driving more than 200 kilometers per hour, that loop must of course be closed immediately, & # 39; said Mr. Khoury.
& # 39; They don't just drive, they play Russian roulette. & # 39;
Sekhon has yet to be sentenced.
