Three men have been charged with driving at over 120mph on an Argyll and Bute road.
At around 3.45pm on Saturday, February 27, road policing officers stopped a 29-year-old driving a BMX X5 travelling at speeds of up to 122mph on the A83 at Glen Kingladd, Cairndow. He was charged in connection with road traffic offences.
Just over an hour later, at around 5.15pm, officers pulled over a BMW six series and a Mini Cooper going at speeds of up to 123mph on the same road.
The two drivers, 23-year-old and a 52-year-old men, were charged in connection with road traffic offences.
Inspector Archie McGuire from Argyll and West Dunbartonshire Road Policing Unit said: “Driving at such excessive speeds shows an utter disregard for the safety of everyone else on the road. Such reckless behaviour is a contributing factor in many serious and fatal road crashes.
“Most drivers using our roads do so with respect for the speed limits, driving conditions and other road users, but I would appeal to the minority to please slow down and reduce the chances of collisions and the danger to others.
“Road Policing Officers will continue to respond to concerns from the public about speeding in their local area. We will keep working to educate drivers and take action where appropriate to improve safety and reduce the number of injuries on our roads.”
