A leading motoring organisation has called fro a crackdown on speeding motorists, fearing that the current message that speeds kills is not getting through to drivers.
The calls from the Institute of Advanced Motoring came amid reports that a driver was caught travelling on the M25 at 149 mile-per-hour; which equates to roughly two-and-a-half miles per minute being travelled.
Although most commercially purchased vehicles are unable to reach such speeds, the driver has the dubious honour of becoming the fastest driver caught by police in England and Wales since April last year.
However, the driver is not the only one to have substantially exceeded the speed limit over the last twelve months, with figures obtained from the Institute of Advanced Motoring finding that a number of drivers have been caught travelling triple the speed limit in a 30 miles-per-hour zone.
The figures also revealed that one driver was caught travelling 119 miles-per-hour in a 50 miles-per-hour zone; with another caught travelling at 127 miles-per-hour.
