It is a particular problem in Fife and a film of a driver doing over 100mph on a rural road is now being examined by officers.
The footage shows the man’s face and officers are now attempting to trace him.
Head of roads policing, Ch Insp Alex Duncan, told the BBC Scotland news website: ‘Driving is a serious responsibility and you've got to have all parts of your brain thinking about driving to make sure that you're safe and other road users are safe.
‘If you're doing that [filming], you're not concentrating on the road and that, at the end of the day, is what's going to keep you safe.’
We've had ten robberies round here in the last few months - police just never get them, no resources they say!
Much easier to target DVLA registered road users as they are easy bate!
Time the police got their head out of their @rse!

I wonder if the police would spend as much time and effort studying CCTV of burglaries/robberies to catch those offenders......

If the police view these tapes to be reliable evidence, then surely if you change your speedo and set it say 15mph slower than it actually is and film yourself getting caught speeding do you think they will use the exvidence?
I suppose that it shows that it is safe to drive at those speeds though!
As if they can.. Once drove the tuscan @200mph for miles.... The speedo had some fault and when i started the car it jumped so the starting point was 150mph... had to get a static pick of it tho...

The police should spend less time watching Utube and more time patrolling the roads.
Yep thats why - they have made themselves predictable
