Police Caught Over 2000 Motorists 'doing over 100mph' in 2015

More than 2,000 motorists in the UK were caught by police speeding at more than 100mph in the last year.

The fastest speed recorded was clocked by a driver in a BMW M4 Coupe doing 156mph - more than double the speed limit - on the A1(M) in Cambridgeshire in March.

The figures come in response to a Freedom of Information request from BBC Radio 5 live.

Of the UK's 45 forces - who were also asked to supply the maximum speed, location and make and model of vehicle involved - 42 replied.

The highest speed recorded was 156mph on the A1(M) in Cambridgeshire in March - more than twice the national limit.

Of the drivers travelling more than 130mph for whom a make of vehicle was given, a quarter were BMW cars or motorcycles. Audi, Mercedes or Ford cars made up another 13 of the group and three more were motorcycles of other types.

The National Police Chiefs Council lead for Roads Policing, Chief Constable Suzette Davenport, told the BBC: "Speed is a significant factor in fatal road accidents and extreme speed causes an even greater risk to road users."
