A P-PLATE driver charged with racing through a residential area at 125km/h has been fined a total of $1100 in Dubbo Local Court.
Troy Francis Burtenshaw pleaded guilty to four charges.
Police alleged the 20-year-old apprentice welder raced through Chelmsford Street, Dubbo between 1pm and 1.30pm on July 18.
The court heard lives were placed at risk when Burtenshaw allegedly drove at 75km/h above the 50km/h speed limit.
Magistrate Andrew Eckhold told Burtenshaw he faced a maximum fine of $3300 for taking part in a street race.
"You were lucky not to be charged with driving in a manner dangerous,'' the magistrate said.
The solicitor representing Burtenshaw described him as a decent young man from a good family.
"He did something really stupid,'' the solicitor said.
"Being charged by police has been a salutary lesson for him.
"He is very embarrassed to be brought before the court.''
The court heard Burtenshaw had successfully completed a traffic offender education program.
The other driver involved in the street race was dealt with by Magistrate Eckhold last month.
Tony Thomas Byers, 34, was fined $1650 and disqualified from driving for eight months.
Magistrate Eckhold said Byers was an older man with previous traffic matters.
He said Burtenshaw was a young man with a clean record.
