Motorist caught speeding at 141mph in Fife


A motorist has been clocked hitting 141mph on the A92 near Cowdenbeath.

The driver is being reported to the procurator fiscal for travelliing at more than twice the 70mph speed limit on the dual carriageway.

The red Volkswagen was detected by police cameras on the eastbound carriageway at around 9.10am yesterday.

In a one hour period from 8.30-9.30am other drivers were detected at 95mph, 98mph and 109mph.

East Safety Camera Unit manager Andy Jones said, “This is totally unacceptable and reckless conduct – there is absolutely no excuse for ignoring the speed limit with such blatant disregard for themselves and anyone else in the area at the time.”

“Had any of these drivers been involved in a collision at these speeds there is absolutely no doubt the outcome would have been catastrophic.

“It is unacceptable that the motorist caught at 141mph on the A92 near Cowdenbeath thought their driving was either safe or in any way appropriate. They will be hearing from us very soon and they will be dealt with robustly, as will the other three drivers.”
