A man who drove on the A94 between Perthshire and Angus at more than 100mph has kept his driving licence.
Ross Parsons, from Scone, reached 103mph at the Castleton of Eassie junction on the Forfar to Perth road, where the speed limit is 60mph.
Forfar Sheriff Court heard that Parsons had not realised the speed his Range Rover was building up.
Appearing on Monday, the 32-year-old admitted speeding on June 18 last year.
Depute fiscal Hannah Kennedy said Parsons was caught by police with a laser device.
Conditions were described as dry and sunny and the court heard there were no other vehicles on the road.
Defending Parsons, of Catmoor Court, solicitor Bob Bruce said his client had “an exemplary driving record” over 13 years and worked as a vehicle removal manager.
Mr Bruce said: “Because of the quality of the vehicle … you are maybe less aware of the speed you are going.”
Parsons was fined £540 and his licence was endorsed with six penalty points.
