A driver has had his Ferrari taken away from him after police spotted the vehicle being driven at 130 mph ‘bumper to bumper over solid white lines and hatch markings’.
The same driver with the same vehicle had already been given a Section 59 warning after he was spotted by officers driving in a manner similar to when he was spotted by the police for the second time.
A Section 59 warning is issued to a driver when a vehicle is used in a manner which is causing annoyance, alarm or distress to members of the public, on or off the road.
When police spotted the distinctive blue sports car for the second time, the driver was travelling at 130 mph ‘bumper-to-bumper’ with another vehicle.
When officers spotted the outrageous driving, they stopped and spoke to the driver, and when it transpired that he had already been warned about the manner of his driver, officers seized the vehicle from him.
The driver has now also been reported for multiple driving offences and risks losing his driving licence.
It is not known when/if he will get his Ferrari back.

We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
