Speeding motorists - Moray
Motorists are being warned to keep to the given speed limits following instances at the weekend in the north east of Scotland which saw three drivers caught by Road Policing Officers well in excess of the speed limits.
On Friday, 5 March, on the B9013 Newton to Burghead road, an18-year-old man was traced driving at 111 mph in a 60 mph limit. On Saturday, 6 March, on the A96 Forres to Alves road, a 43-year-old man was traced driving at 104 mph in a 60 mph limit, and on Sunday, 7 March, on the Blackdog to Ellon road, a 36-year-old man was traced driving at 122 mph in a 70 mph limit. All three will be the subject of reports to the Procurator Fiscal in relation to dangerous driving.
Sergeant Peter Henderson of Police Scotland’s North East Road Policing Unit said: “Speeds such as these are just not acceptable and could very well put not only themselves, but other road users in danger.”
