A motorist caught speeding at 110mph told police he had travelled more than 100 miles to London to buy bread because it was cheaper.
Officers stopped the man at about 10:40pm on Sunday as he was heading back to Nottingham on the M1.
He was with his two young children and told police he had travelled to the capital because a loaf of bread was £1 cheaper there during the coronavirus outbreak.
The driver was given two fixed penalty notices and reported to court for the speeding, Leicestershire Police said.
The distance between Nottingham and London is more than 120 miles and police said the man was stopped near Junction 22 in Leicestershire.
The courts will decide the level of the fine, the force said.
The second notice was under the Health Protection Regulations 2020, which comes with a £60 fine.
It came into force in March to give police powers to punish anyone breaking the coronavirus lockdown restrictions.
