Driver caught doing 90mph

Have your say

BEING caught by police driving at speeds of up to 90mph has left a Surfleet man with five points on his licence.

David Nicol (49), of Station Road, was clocked by a marked police van as he pulled on to the A16 some 300 metres in front of it and accelerated away.

Prosecutor Rebecca Ritson told Spalding Magistrates’ Court on Thursday how PC Scott McCaig was “still only catching up” with Nicol as he reached 90mph on November 12.

She said he finally caught up with him as he slowed down for a roundabout and kept a steady distance at 85mph.

Nicol, who was not represented by a solicitor in court, said: “I was speeding. I hold my hands up.”

Magistrates endorsed his licence with five penalty points and ordered him to pay an £85 fine, £43 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.
