Two cars have been impounded for travelling at speeds of up to 172km/h on the Goulburn Valley Hwy at the weekend.

Nagambie police Sergeant Graeme Callaghan said Seymour Highway Patrol intercepted a car travelling north in excess of 160km/h on the Nagambie bypass on Saturday afternoon.

He said a second car was also intercepted travelling north on the same road at 172km/h on Sunday afternoon.

Sgt Callaghan said it was disappointing drivers were continuing to take risks on the road.

‘‘It would appear the road safety message is not getting across,’’ Sgt Callaghan said.

‘‘We urge drivers to slow down and take rest stops ... we’ll continue to patrol the area with vigour.’’

He said both drivers had their licences suspended for a month and would face a $900 towing fee in addition to their speeding fine.
