A man who was driving without a licence and allegedly had drugs in his system has had his car impounded.
The 43-year-old was originally intercepted by police for travelling 120km/h in a 110 zone on the Western Freeway near Invermay Park on Saturday morning.
However, it was soon revealed he had more than a speeding ticket to worry about.
A licence check revealed the man from the north-west suburbs of Melbourne had his licence cancelled by a magistrate just two days prior.
He also returned a positive roadside drug test, before his car was impounded at a cost of $1425.
The man is expected to be charged on summons with drug and other driving offences.
This impound forms part of Operation Argus, which focuses on impaired driving, motorcycles, excessive speed, driver distraction and not wearing seatbelts.
The state-wide operation will run midnight on Sunday.
