Police had to force a 100mph driver off the road after chasing him through traffic across Angus.
Scott Fraser “panicked” when a patrol car pulled out behind his Nissan Primera between Dundee and Arbroath and sped off, undertaking cars, when officers switched on their blue lights.
The Dundee 34-year-old was finally halted when he was spun around 180 degrees by police in a tactical move to halt him.
He hit another driver then careered off the road and through a fence after a stinger operation on the outskirts of Dundee.
Fraser, of Findon Terrace, Fintry appeared at Forfar sheriff court for sentence after previously admitting a string of charges relating to the June 23 incident.
They included driving dangerously and at excessive speed, failing to stop for police and driving without a licence.
Officers made their first attempt at a tactical stop attempt at Muirdrum, but he sped off from the grass verge to rejoin the dual carriageway and headed up the A92 to Arbroath’s Elliot roundabout at between 100 and 110mph.
He then headed back along the road to Dundee, was ‘stung’ after hitting around 70mph at Panmurefield village and then mounted the verge after hitting a car.
Fraser’s desperate attempt to evade justice ended when he had to slow down in traffic and police were able to force him off the road.
Defence solicitor Billy Rennie said: “He had been gifted his grandfather’s car after he passed away and unfortunately tempted to use it, knowing his licence had been revoked.
“What seems clear from reports is that he does show significant insight and remorse.
“His simply panicked when he saw the police.
“There have been some positive changes in his life and he has detoxed from previous substance abuse that affected his life.”
Sheriff Jillian Martin Brown told Fraser: “This is a serious offence, you drove at speeds well in excess of the limit, you had a number of opportunities to stop and you have previous convictions for other road traffic offences.
“You accept that this was extremely dangerous in your attempts to evade the police, which were ultimately unsuccessful.”
Fraser was banned from driving for 18 months and ordered to carry out 185 hours unpaid work under a 12-month Community Payback Order.
