Two year ban for 110mph biker

"You rode like an idiot" says Judge

A MOTORCYCLIST caught speeding at 110mph, pulling wheelies and riding at double the speed limit in a 30mph zone has been banned from driving for two years.

Stuart Middleton, 32, of Saltdean, East Sussex, was caught by a police officer on an unmarked motorbike. He was given a four month suspended jail sentence at Brighton Crown Court.

Judge Paul Tain told him: "You rode like an idiot. I use these roads, members of the jury use these roads and I take a very dim view of anybody who risks the lives of others by riding so dangerously."

Inspector Marc Clothier from Sussex Police's Road Policing Unit Operations team said: "Motorcyclists represent a small proportion of overall road users, but account for a very high proportion of fatal and serious injury road traffic crashes.

"We fully accept that the vast majority of motorcyclists are law abiding and careful riders and we continue to work with the biking community to promote safe riding, but where any motorist deliberately and intentionally puts themselves and other road users at danger they can expect to be dealt with robustly."
