The A90 in Angus saw Tayside’s most excessive case of speeding over the last three years, according to new figures.
Four 100mph-plus dual carriageway motorists have been picked out from among 63 drivers clocked at more than 100mph on Tayside roads since 2012.
Of the 28 drivers reported to the procurator fiscal for speeding, one man was clocked at 129mph at the A90’s Waterston junction last year.
Calum Keith, 23, of Old Rayne in Aberdeenshire, was banned from the road for a year at Forfar Sheriff Court after an early-morning “moment of stupidity” in his Audi A5.
And in February this year, another man drove at 123mph past two speed cameras at the same junction and Stracathro but escaped prosecution due to an identification issue.
The youngest offender was an 18-year-old driving at 101mph near Stracathro in November last year, while the oldest was a 58-year-old caught at 114mph by Douglastown in 2012.
Figures obtained under Freedom of Information legislation show 87% of culprits were male.
All of the offending vehicles were cars, except three motorbikes and one light goods vehicle recorded at 110mph near the A90’s Kirriemuir junction in March.
Steve Gooding of the RAC Foundation said the low proportion of drivers reported is “not acceptable.”
But east area safety camera manager Andy Jones said the “true figure” for non-reports is about 17% due to emergency service vehicles crossing cameras at high speeds.
He said: “Police Scotland will work tirelessly to trace the driver of a vehicle caught speeding.”
