Drivers Exceeding 100mph Clocked on Busy Dorset Road


8:22am 28th May 2014

Wessex FM's been given figures showing the worst speeding offences in the county in the last year.

One driver was clocked doing 120 miles per hour on the A35 at the junction with the A350.

The A35 Puddletown Bypass also seems to be a hot spot for speeding, with two drivers caught on camera doing 109 and 107 miles per hour.

The figures were given to the Institute of Advanced Motorists by Dorset Police in response to a freedom of information request.

IAM Chief Executive Simon Best told Wessex FM:

"Speed limits are a limit. They are not a target to beat. Unfortunately this message has not got through to many motorists and it's clear that efforts to make speeding as socially unacceptable as drink driving continue to fail.  That's why we need sustained campaigning by the government, motor industry and charities to keep ramming home the message that excessive speed kills.  Catching speeders at two or even three times the limit also shows the importance of keeping speed cameras at well-known black spots."
