A second driver in the space of just five days has been reported to the procurator fiscal after being caught doing more than 140mph on the A92 in Fife.
Officers saw a silver Honda driving at up to an incredible 145mph at around 10.50pm on Friday September 7 between the Redhouse roundabout in Kirkcaldy and Bankhead roundabout in Glenrothes.
Police stopped the vehicle and a 24-year-old man has been reported for dangerous driving, having allegedly travelled at more than double the 70mph dual carriageway limit.
The latest incident comes just days after another driver was reported following a similar incident on the stretch near Cowdenbeath on Sunday September 2.
On that occasion, Police Scotland’s safety camera unit detected a red Volkswagen driving at 141mph and the driver has also been reported to the procurator fiscal.
Inspector Andy Mather, of Fife Road Policing Unit, said: “Speed limits are in place to assist in making our roads safer.
“Driving at speeds which are grossly in excess of the maximum speed limit is simply dangerous.
“Drivers are not only putting their own lives at risk but increasing the risk to their passengers and other road users.
“This manner of driving will not be tolerated on the roads in Fife.
“Officers will continue to carry out both marked and unmarked patrols alongside the Safety Camera Unit to ensure that our roads remain safe for everyone.”
