Police allege a young child without a seatbelt was in the car at the time.
When questioned by police, the 40-year-old allegedly claimed the reason for speeding was because he had an upset stomach and needed to go to the toilet.
He will be charged on summons with driving at a speed dangerous, exceeding the speed limit and having an unrestrained child.
He is also required to surrender his vehicle at a later date.
