A motorcyclist has been banned from the roads after he was caught out by his own helmet camera doing 105mph on a 40mph road.

Dennis Kuzmenok, 19, of Kent Road, Southampton, was stopped by police after he was involved in an accident in the centre of the city.

When officers examined his helmet camera they found footage showing he had previously driven 105mph on the 40mph Thomas Lewis Way and had also driven at 120mph on the M3.

A Hampshire police spokesman said: “While the speeds shown on the speedometer are slightly higher, the court was told that its accuracy was out by 8%, so the speeds were reduced to reflect that.

“This was enough evidence to summons him to court for dangerous driving on two counts and the jury was unanimous with their guilty verdicts.

“During the sentencing Judge Burrell described Kuzmenok as ‘arrogant’ and said he had showed ‘little regard’ for the safety of others.”

Kuzmenok was sentenced at Southampton Crown Court to a 12-month community order to carry out 50 hours of unpaid work and disqualified from driving for 15 months, with an extended retest.

Pc Richard Miell said: “This shocking footage clearly shows just how dangerous his riding was.

“Travelling at high speeds on any roads is incredibly reckless, but to do it on Thomas Lewis Way and the M3, two major roads with heavy traffic, showed total disregard for others and put not only his life at risk but the lives of other innocent road users.

“I hope it comes as some reassurance to the public that this dangerous rider is no longer a risk on our roads.”
