BMW Driver Racks Up 100 Penalty Points After Setting Off 32 Speed Cameras
A BMW driver has managed to rack up more than 100 penalty points after setting off a total of 32 speed cameras.
The speeding driver was behind the wheel of a white 7 Series BMW, when they were caught doing an average of 83mph in heavy fog - zooming through motorway roadworks, which had a 60mph speed limit.
After being picked up by cameras on the M6, the motorist was eventually stopped between junctions 14 and 15, near Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire.
In total, the unnamed driver clocked up 32 speeding offences, which could land them 96 points on their license.
The car was also found to have two bald tyres, which is usually another three points, and the person had no insurance, which adds between six and eight.
Tally all those up, and they could be facing a grand total of 107 points on their license. Ouch.
Tweeting the news, Central Motorway Police Group said: "M6 J14-J15 BMW stopped due to activating 32 speed cameras at very high speeds.

"Whilst we were following it we recorded its average speed of 83mph in the roadworks 60s in thick fog.
"Driver detained and BMW seized no insurance and two bald tyres."
The tweet has been liked more than 400 times, with many social media users commenting to guess how many points the various offenses amount to.
One person wrote: "Thirty-two cameras, plus 2 bald tyres, and 83mph. I reckon that's 105 points at least. By the time he gets his license back the only place he'll be able to drive is an internal combustion engine theme park."
Another Twitter user commented: "Said driver has zero respect for motoring laws and road common sense! Maybe people should be tested for this on their driving test, if indeed, they actually took one!"
A third said: "Do you ever test driver for IQ - are you even allowed to) they most surely know they will get stopped, they either don't care or don't consider it will happen - more worryingly is the danger they present to law abiding road users. Good stop CMPG."
Another urged: "Don't crush the car. Not environmentally friendly. Change the law so police can legally seize car and auction it off with proceeds going to road crime victims. Criminal deprived of their car and money raised to help those who need it. Win win in my book."
