20 Worst Speeders: Driver Clocked At 139mph In Scotland

Road Safety Charity Reveals 20 Worst Speeders In Scotland

A motorist has been caught at 139mph in a 60mph zone in Scotland, the Institute of Advanced Motorists has revealed. This tops the list of the 20 most serious speeding offences – or to be more accurate the most serious known offences – in Scotland between April 1st 2013 and June 30th 2014. It took place on the A96 close to Aberdeenshire and the motorist was pictured mobile camera rather than a static equivalent. The second/third worst offences have been recorded in 70mph zones at 129mph and 127mph (A90 and A9, respectively). Alarmingly, every motorist in the top 20 has been travelling far in excess of 100mph. Such speeds cannot be blamed on a lapse in concentration or brief moment of acceleration to pass a slow vehicle. They can only – even in high performance models – be achieved by deliberate, hard, acceleration for a sustained period. The Institute of Advanced Motorists Chief Executive, Simon Best, – who works to promote road safety – explained that: “These speeds show there are still drivers out there displaying a contempt for the law and for the safety of their fellow road users”.
