    Default Yahoo news - Police condemn 147mph Jaguar driver

    Big fine and 6 points making a total of 12 so banned. I wonder, what was it the policeman doing similar speeds got a few years back? If less, could be basis for appeal? And no, I'm not condoning driving at those speeds on the roads!

    I always thought 100mph+ was a ban at least.

    147 mph I've just changed up to 5th gear ready to bring on the Nitrous onslaught.

    Thank god for RAF runways to play with. Someone should tell the Jag driver it only costs £99-£150 per day. Lot cheaper than a speeding fine, public humiliation and a prison sentance.

    And they record the run top speeds so you get a record of it to take home .................

    In some cases it can be classed as dangerous driving which carries a possible if not definite jail sentence. Also depends on what time, weather, why and how busy the roads are. If it was during a hot summers day with no traffic on the road it would probably carry a hefty fine and 3 points bear minimum.

    Lol, and yes, he was a pensioner, in a Jaguar XKR, think he was Company Director. One of the concerns with the earlier incident on the M54 was it could set precedents, so I just wondered, either way, if it had done.

    Hi Mr. Grumpy - the P.C. was a traffic officer who had got a car with which he was not familiar and driving, if my memory serves me right, on an empty motorway at night. He was also an advanced/pursuit driver and felt that he should get to know the handling/performance characteristics of the car at high speeds - and I mean 130+ territory where things happen very quickly indeed.

    My daughter is similarly qualified to the officer in question and has had to chase villains at 140+. They also practice (amongst other things) the boxing-in manoeuvre on 'closed' motorways at speeds approaching 100 mph - try that as a team event without knowing your car !!

    Therefore the current case you quote has no bearing whatsoever with the P.C. you mention because he was found to have been acting in the execution of his duties and was therefore exempt by law.

    The police force in question had to revise it's training schedules to cater for the circumstances in which to officer found himself.
