M25 motorist caught at 149mph by speed camera
A motorist has been caught speeding at 149mph – more than twice the legal motorway limit and a record for the past year.
Others have been caught doing three times the legal limit in 30mph zones – one near a rural primary school.
The motorway offence, on the M25 near Swanley in Kent, was captured by a speed camera and was the highest recorded speed during the period April 2013 to May 2014.
The figures revealed that another driver caught by the same speed camera clocked up 146mph at Swanley on the M25, with two more hitting 127mph.
New digital cameras have recently been installed on the M25 and older ones re-activated.
The offences were revealed in data received from police under a Freedom of Information Act request from the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM).
