A BMW driver who failed to notice a speed enforcement van as he sped away from officers is due to receive a hefty fine in the post, according to the Derbyshire Roads Policing Unit.
The driver of the white BMW had been stopped by roads policing unit officers only days before he was stopped and spoken to again about the manner of his driving.
After officers had finished giving the male ‘words of advice’ he then sped away from the scene in a rage as he left a thick cloud of burning rubber in his wake.
However, the driver failed to notice that a speed enforcement van was further up the road and it caught him driving at 40 mph in a 30 mph zone as he drove away from officers ‘in a huff’.
@DerbyshireRPU tweeted to say:
‘BMW driver stopped and is sucking his teeth. Pulled in two days ago for a bald tyre.
‘Leaves in a huff, showing off by wheel spinning out but fails to notice @CRESTDerbyshire van which records him at 40 mph in a 30 mph speed limit’.
