AN UNINSURED driver was caught speeding at 130mph on Bingley bypass - believed to be the highest recorded by police on the road.
Sergeant Cameron Buchan, who is leading the Operation Steerside crackdown on dangerous drivers in Bradford district, described the speed reached as “unacceptable and unjustifiable”.
Councillor Mark Shaw (Con, Bingley) said residents of the town did not need such “moronic idiots” on their roads.
Steerside officers stopped the driver - who was in a Golf R32 - shortly after midnight on May 16. Police were forced to reach 134mph to catch the Golf.
Cllr Shaw said there needed to be jail sentences for such driving and the vehicles should be seized
