Dangerous driving could be among the charges considered in respect of a man who was caught speeding on the N5 in Co Mayo last Friday.
The motorist was driving a silver BMW saloon at Carracastle when he was detected speeding by Mayo’s Road Policing Unit at 4pm that afternoon.
The driver, who was in his 30s, was recorded driving at 187km per hour in a 100km per hour zone.
He was stopped and cautioned about his driving and a file is now being prepared for DPP directions.
The Western People understands that speeding of this nature could merit a dangerous driving charge which, on conviction, can incur a penalty of a fine of up to €5,000 or six months imprisonment or both.
