A driver who sped along a road at 115mph because he was annoyed at being cut up by another motorist has been fined £400 and had six penalty points imposed on his licence.
Marc Sivewright, 43, was spotted by officers in an unmarked police vehicle as he made his way along the A92 Dundee to Arbroath road.
The unmarked police car followed Sivewright’s vehicle for 1.43 miles — during which time he clocked an average of 115mph in 70mph, 60mph and 50mph zones.
The incident happened on Saturday March 19 at 5.45pm.
Previously, fiscal depute Trina Sinclair told the court police saw the accused approach in his vehicle and did a speed check before following him for a short distance.
The fiscal added: “They followed him for 1.43 miles, and over that distance he drove at an average of 115mph.”
He was stopped by officers and cautioned and charged, to which he gave no reply. Sivewright, of Carlogie, Carnoustie, admitted that he drove a car at 115mph while travelling on the A92 Dundee to Arbroath road, between Ethiebeaton and Carlungie, on March 19.
He drove at the excessive speed in 70mph, 60mph and 50mph zones.
