Joshua Harris of road safety charity Brake said: “Speeding at over 100mph is selfish, irresponsible and seriously endangers the lives of other road users – there is simply no excuse.
“Drivers who show disregard for the safety of others should have their licenses revoked and will do well to remember that driving is a privilege, not a right.”
Elsewhere, officers in Peterhead stopped and spoke to three drivers following concern in the local community regarding speeding.

One driver was also issued a conditional offer for a road traffic offence as checks were carried out on the A90 Edinburgh to Fraserburgh road at Boddam.
Constable Andrew Yule said: “We will continue to act on concerns from local residents and where possible carry out checks.
“I would urge drivers to drive to the road conditions and observe speed limits.”
