Cops use unmarked car to catch biker who kept flipping the bird at speed camera

A biker has had his motorcycle seized after repeatedly triggering a speed camera.

The unnamed man, 44, broke the 30mph speed limit six separate times on Pembury Road in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

And every time he did it he made offensive hand gestures towards the camera – demonstrating he was well aware of what he was doing.

Police decided to take action and sent an unmarked car to the location last Wednesday.

Within 15 minute the man on the bike came along and he was found to be unlicenced and uninsured.

He was reported for both offences and he will also be taken to court over the speeding.

The Kent Police Roads Policing Unit tweeted: ‘Great work from RPU 5 who stopped this male with help from colleagues in our Traffic Process Unit.

‘He had no licence and no [insurance] and multiple speeding offences pending… we hope he’s got some comfier shoes with all the walking he will be doing.’ 

Chief inspector Craig West, the force’s head of roads policing, said: ‘Speed limits and cameras are in place to protect the public and should not be treated as a game.

‘Motorists who speed risk receiving a fine and points on their licence, and in certain cases being brought before the courts.

‘More importantly they risk causing a collision that could result in a death or serious injury.

‘Please remember to drive responsibly at all times to protect yourself and other road-users.’

Six times seems a lot, but one laundry delivery driver could face a whopping 81 penalty points after being caught speeding 22 times in just three weeks.
