Driver stopped by police after hitting 145mph in Fife
Police have stopped a driver on the A92 in Fife after he was recorded at 145mph.
Officers observed a silver Honda travelling at that speed at around 10.50pm on Friday night, between the Redhouse and Bankhead roundabouts in Glenrothes.
Officers stopped the vehicle and a 24-year-old man has been reported to the procurator fiscal for dangerous driving.
Another driver was reported last week after a red Volkswagen was detected travelling at 141mph on the A92 near Cowdenbeath.
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.”
