Date: Monday, February 16 @ 22:16:23 UTC
The Evening Telegraph has reported today that a Tayside Police officer, who was caught speeding at 144mph by a speed camera on the A90 Dundee to Aberdeen road, escaped prosecution.
It also reports that last year there were 250 incidents on Tayside's roads where police vehicles were caught speeding, none of which resulted in prosecution. It adds that not one driver of a Tayside Police vehicle has received a penalty for speeding within the their area since 2006.
However one high-profile Tayside officer, Chief Constable, Kevin Mathieson was recently caught speeding at 72mph in a 60mph zone and prosecuted. That was outside his own patch though, so wasn''t recorded in Tayside's records.
