Biker caught doing 137mph on A96

police gaelic scotland alba POLICE have issued a warning about the dangers of speeding after a motorcyclist was caught doing 137mph on the A96.

A 46-year-old man has been charged with dangerous driving after he was stopped between Blackburn and Kintore shortly before 2pm on Wednesday.

Road Policing Sergeant Steve Manson said: "A collision at this speed could result in catastrophic consequences.

"The recent weather conditions and the fact that many of the roads are wet or have standing water makes it all the more dangerous.

"The A96 has a maximum speed limit of 70mph for a reason. Travelling at anything above this speed risks not only your own life but those of other road users.

"The speed limit is not a target. When the conditions are poor you should reduce your speed."

The man will be reported to the Procurator Fiscal and will appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court at a later date.
