DANGEROUS drivers racing at speeds of more than 100mph were among those caught by Dorset Police's dedicated No Excuse road safety team this week.

On Friday, October 16 the team was patrolling the A30 near Sherborne when they stopped their first driver of the day who was travelling at 100mph.

A No Excuse spokesman said: "Upon stopping the driver they said they already had six points on their licence and would likely lose their job if they were to get anymore.
"It was explained to the young driver that their driving career was in their own hands and should they continue to drive like that they could expect it to be a short career unless they were able to change the manner of their driving."

Other drivers reported for speeds included a 22-year-old vehicle being driven at 93mph and a 23-year-old vehicle being driven at 104mph.

A spokesman added: "Whilst the vehicles had valid MOT’S their conditions couldn’t be described as A1 and crashes at these speeds in older vehicles could result in far more significant risk of serious injury if not death to the occupants due to lack of modern safety features."
