A motorcycle was detected allegedly travelling at 112mph while overtaking a line of traffic on the A85, north of Glen Dochart Park, Crianlarich, on Saturday – nearly twice the speed limit.

East Safety Camera Unit Manager Andy Jones said: ‘Losing control when travelling at excessive speed is one of the most common causes of collisions involving motorcyclists. This biker has put themself and other road users at risk by overtaking numerous vehicles at nearly double the speed limit and will be reported to the Procurator Fiscal.’

Inspector Andrew Thomson from Forth Valley Road Policing Unit added: ‘It is disappointing that this biker has taken no notice of the recent Police Scotland motorcycle campaign, which highlighted the dangers of inappropriate speed. Motorcyclists are among the most vulnerable on our roads, therefore they must make sure that they are travelling at an appropriate speed within the speed limit.’
