Here's a driver who clearly thinks he was a Safespeeder:

A bus driver who was chased by the police as he rode a motorbike at 125mph has been fined and banned from the roads for a year.

He had claimed: "I was extremely accommodating to all the other vehicles on the road. I would class myself as a careful and competent driver."

A careful driver who apparently didn't realise the police were behind him (with their sirens going) or what speed he was doing !

'He was oblivious to the police car behind him as he rode through Tayside and Fife.

Bell eventually spotted the police vehicle and pulled over, later admitting: "I had no idea what speed I was doing."'
