Scottish police have charged a 20-year-old man with speeding at 141mph on the A92 near Cowdenbeath - more than double the 70mph limit.

The alleged incident, which took place in the early hours of the morning, is just one of many in the area over the last few months.

Allegedly, one 24-year-old man was clocked doing 145mph, and on another day four drivers were repotedly monitored doing 141mph, 109mph, 98mph and 95mph respectively.

A local mobile speed camera unit spokesman commented: "This is totally unacceptable and reckless conduct there is absolutely no excuse for ignoring the speed limit with such blatant disregard for themselves and anyone else in the area at the time"

He added: "The faster you drive, the less time you have to react and the harder the impact is. In the event of a collision, motorists who speed are more likely to cause death or serious injury not only to themselves, but to their passengers, other motorists or road users. Had any of these drivers been involved in a collision at these speeds there is absolutely no doubt the outcome would have been catastrophic."

[nit pick]You have exactly the same time to react. But the problem is that, at a higher sped, you travel a further during that reaction time . [/nitpick]
I wish people would get their basic facts correct when they write these 'factual' reports. Other than that small point, the rest of the final quote is fact.
