A north-east biker has been banned from the roads after jumping through a red light and speeding in Aberdeen city centre.
Graham Scott was spotted by police on his motorbike on South College Street at around 10.30am on February 16 this year.
Officers saw the 61-year-old drive through a red light at the junction with the car park before driving between two lanes of traffic.
He then waited for the next set of lights to turn amber before driving down the Denburn in excess of the speed limits.
Scott appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court yesterday where he admitted committing the road traffic offences.
Fiscal Depute Colin Neilson said: “Police attempted to follow him but due to the speed of the vehicles they were unable to do so.”
Scott, whose address was given as Bon Accord Street, Aberdeen, was later detained and cautioned.
Defence agent Iain Macgregor said: “My client has held a driving licence for 40 years.
“He has previous road traffic offences meaning seven more points would cause him to lose this.
“The road he was speeding on has two lanes and has no pedestrians going across it.”
Sheriff Malcolm Garden disqualified him.
He said: “This is not a case of one simple mistake it is a number of manoeuvres.
“It is not dangerous driving but it is careless and above the five point level.
“You will be given seven points, disqualified for six months and fined £300.”
