Daily court round-up graphic

Fast approaching the weekend. Not this fast, though…

119mph past road workers

A motorist sped along a the M90 in Fife at almost 120mph while there were workmen in the road.

“They were sitting in a layby monitoring traffic travelling northbound on the M90 Queensferry Crossing.

“At this time road maintenance workers were situated on the hard shoulder adjacent to lane one carrying out repairs.

The 19-year-old sped past roadworks on the M90.

“Both officers heard the sound of a car approaching from behind, which appeared to be travelling at high speed.

“As the vehicle passed the bottom of the slip road PC Keeney recorded its speed at 119mph.

“At this time the vehicle was in lane two and continued past the road workers without slowing.”

She said the 19-year-old had stopped when signalled by the police officers.

Stewart, of Targate Road, Dunfermline, admitted driving dangerously at grossly excessive speeds and in close proximity to road workers on March 29.

He was banned for 12 months and ordered to sit the extended driving test and 75 hours of unpaid work.

Bat and knife

Fife teenager Lennon Donaldson has been fined after he swung a baseball bat and Stanley knife at his dad.

Donaldson, 18, of Windmill Road in Kirkcaldy, had called his family on January 27 and they went to look for them in their car, the town’s sheriff court was told.

They found him outside the Fast ‘N’ Fresh sandwich bar on Bennochy Road and as they drew alongside him, he smashed the car window with the bat.

Donaldson’s father got out and the teenager swung the bat and then the knife at him.

He fell to the ground and his son continued to swing the knife towards him.

Police were contacted by onlookers.
