Excessive Speed Leads to Custodial Sentence and Ban

  • Posted

Earlier this week, it was revealed that a motorist caught speeding with young children in the back of the car, has received a custodial sentence, along with a driving ban.

The motorist was caught by officers conducted roadside speed checks on the A1 in Cambridgeshire, travelling at 150 mph, before later being stopped by police on the A14 travelling at 90 mph.

Once the driver had been stopped, the police found four young children – all under the age of five – within the back of the vehicle, without any seatbelts on; whilst further checks revealed that the motorist was not insured to driver the vehicle.

After admitting dangerous driving and driving without insurance, the motorist was handed a 20 week custodial sentence, along with a three year driving ban; whilst it has also been revealed that the driver will be required to sit additional tests before regaining his licence.
