Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

A SPEED­ING driver who was pho­tographed trav­el­ling through road­works at 111mph has been fined and dis­qual­i­fied.

Damian Kirby, 27, of More­hall Av­enue, Folkestone, ad­mit­ted to Ash­ford mag­is­trates on Fri­day that on Jan­uary 12 this year he sped through the tem­po­rary 50mph speed limit on the M20 at junc­tion 10 at Ash­ford.

He was fined £350, or­dered to pay court costs of £35 and dis­qual­i­fied from driv­ing for 42 days.

The Kent and Med­way Safety Cam­era Part­ner­ship caught the Mercedes he was driv­ing on its mo­bile safety cam­era van.

Spokesman for the part­ner­ship Rachel Wall said: “The tem­po­rary 50mph limit is there for the safety of the work­force and mo­torists dur­ing road­works.

“This of­fence was a bla­tant dis­re­gard for peo­ple’s safety and the law. This type of driv­ing is out­ra­geous and will not be tol­er­ated by the part­ner­ship.”
