This motor threat was detected during the morning rush hour in a 30-mile zone with a camera running a staggering 103 miles per hour.

Stephen Dunn was driving his Honda Civic as he hit the shocking speed of the A193 near Bebside and Bedlington in Northumberland.

A court heard that there is a top speed of 48 km / h in the area because the junctions, garages, shops and residential real estate are only 1 or 2 meters from the roadside.

But that did not stop Dunn from setting his foot to 100 km / h before he spotted a manned mobile radar camera asking him to pull the brakes tight enough to spin after his wheels were blocked and smoke from his Tires, prosecutors, could ascend said.

The 37-year-old's attempts to slow down, however, were unsuccessful, as his breathtaking pace had already been recorded in front of the camera.

Now Dunn of North Ridge, Bedlington, has barely avoided the prison after pleading guilty to a hearing in the South East Northumberland Magistrates' Court.

Instead, he was sentenced to eight weeks' imprisonment, suspended for twelve months, and sentenced to 200 hours of unpaid work.

Ami Dodd, the indictment, said it was around 9 am on August 28 this year, when Dunn was first discovered by an officer who was holding a radar camera.

"The speed limit in this area of ​​the A193 is 30 miles per hour," she told the court.

"The culprit was discovered by a supervised camera driving at 103 mph.

"The on-duty official confirms that the area presents a number of hazards, including intersections, garages, shops and residential buildings located 1 to 2 meters from the roadside.

"CCTV shows how the defendant violently brakes at the sight of the radar camera car, blocking his wheels and allowing slides and smoke from the tires to be seen.

"The defendant can then be seen wearing his seat belt when he sees the security camera car."

The court was told that other vehicles were traveling at the time and that Dunn was lucky that it was school holidays because the children usually went to school in the area.

The budding electrician Dunn kept going, but was found by the police and approached less than an hour later.

Stephen Chambers, who defended himself, said Dunn was in a hurry to see a friend in the hospital, and he did not notice that the speed limit had dropped from 60 to 30 mph.

He added, "He's upset, it was a moment of madness, he was supposed to go to Ibiza that day, but the friend who had organized the trip had been hospitalized and he traveled to Cramlington to see how the friend was. "

District Judge Bernard Begley condemned him and said, "I understand that you are disturbed because you have simply put yourself in a situation where people are sent to prison, which is the reality of the situation."

Dunn was also banned from the streets for 15 months and has to pass an extended driving test before he can get behind the wheel again.
