Four to be reported after 128mph detection

Published 29 April 2019

Police Scotland can confirm that four men are to be reported in connection with speeding offences detected in the Highlands at the weekend.

The men - aged 55, 46, 35 and 22 - will be reported after four vehicles were detected travelling at 128mph within the 60mph limit on the A890 at Glencarron, west of Achnasheen early on the afternoon of Saturday, April 27.

The detection followed directly on from information received from a concerned member of the public.

Road Policing Sergeant Chris Murray said “ It is disappointing to see some drivers are willing to place themselves and others at risk by driving at excessive speeds and in a dangerous manner.

"We will continue to proactively enforce the speed limit while also carrying out preventative work under Operation Cedar.

"The roads of the Highlands have so much to offer for drivers and many travel great distances to enjoy them - please make sure you do so safely and at an appropriate speed.

"I would urge people to take responsibility for their own driving - if you are tempted to speed then consider what the consequences could be of your decision."

Anyone with concerns about the manner of driving can call 101 or 999 in an emergency.
