Nine drivers clocked at over 120mph in scotland

The figures have been revealed by the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) after it made a Freedom of Information request to Police Scotland. 

All the Top 20 were recorded on A roads. In each case the limit was 70mph. The top three are as follows: 

1 – 129mph: A90 Dundee to Aberdeen Road at Waterston Road, Angus 

2 – 127mph: A9 Perth to Inverness Road at Moulinearn, Perth and Kinross 

3 – 125mph: A74 (M) Glasgow – Carlisle Road, Southbound Carriageway Near To Holms Overbridge, Beattock 

The findings come after the IAM made a similar request for England last month, which revealed two cases of 146mph being recorded on the M25 in Kent, plus one motorist caught doing 128mph in a 30mph road in East Grinstead. 

Sarah Sillars, IAM chief executive officer, said: “A person who finds driving at these speeds acceptable on a public road needs to undergo a complete rethinking of their attitude with a training and rehabilitation programme. We firmly believe this is the best way of tackling what are undoubtedly persistent and repeat speeders. 

“We also renew our call for highly visible policing to ensure the threat of getting caught remains in drivers’ and riders’ minds.”
