A motorist who allegedly drove at almost 140mph has been described as “reckless and irresponsible” by police.
Police Scotland said the driver had been travelling at an average speed of 139.8mph in the Tayside area.
Officers stopped the motorist on the A92 Dundee to Arbroath road near Hatton at about 8pm on Saturday August 27.
Road Policing Inspector Ray Cuthill said: “There is no excuse for travelling on our roads in such a reckless and irresponsible manner. I am relieved that this incident did not result in a collision, where the risk of death or serious injury to an innocent member of the public or to the driver themselves would have been significant.
“Despite our repeated message, driving in this way is not a minor offence but serious and dangerous. It is disappointing that someone placed themselves and others in danger by travelling at a completely inappropriate speed.”
A 23-year-old has been charged with dangerous driving and reported to the Procurator Fiscal.
