Police are cracking down on speeders, after a number of a “high level” offences over the bank holiday weekend.

On May 9, a 27-year-old man was detected driving at 119mph on the A90 near Blackdog in Aberdeenshire.

Two days later a 29-year-old man, also on the A90, allegedly reached speeds of 101mph near Ellon.

And between Friday, May 8 and Sunday, May 10 a total of 12 men were caught driving at speeds between 93mph and 111mph on the M876 J2 near Larbert.

The men, aged between 19 and 66, will be reported to the Procurator Fiscal.

Police Scotland’s head of road policing Louise Blakelock said: “With the current challenges facing us just now, we need to protect the NHS and save lives, therefore, drivers need to be more cautious and consider other road users.

“The high speeds detected over the weekend show that despite the clear risks involved a minority of drivers are still willing to take their chance.

“Officers will continue to patrol the road network to deter and detect illegal driving behaviour in an effort to keep the public safe.”
