VIDEO: 151mph M23 driver convicted of speeding

Police have released video footage which shows the moment a young driver is caught speeding at 151mph on the M23. This incident, captured by our safety camera team, recorded the Audi TT RS travelling at more than double the 70mph limit. The driver was reported for dangerous driving and has since been convicted in court. To view the footage online, visit the Sussex Police Facebook or Twitter pages.  Its release comes as West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service urges motorists to slow down as part of its speeding prevention month. Last year, 16 people died and a further 239 were seriously injured by speed-related collisions in Sussex. To read more and to watch the video click here.
