Police Speeding Arrest

A speeding motorcyclist who hid or did not display a registration plate and caused a danger to other road users has been apprehended on video by Sussex Police officers.

The rider, Kieran Jones, was spotted speeding at a claimed 80mph in 30mph zones, as well as crossing solid white lines, and overtaking vehicles dangerously in the county. He was apprehended by officers after a police chase and has since been charged at Crawley Magistrates’ Court on March 11.

In the court he admitted to dangerous driving, driving without due care and attention, failing to stop, failing to comply with a solid white line road marking, and eight counts of speeding between July last year and February. The former landscape garden from Reigate Jones, formerly a landscape gardener of Hornbeam Road, Reigate, is now disqualified from driving for three years and ordered to complete 225 hours of unpaid work as part of a six-month suspended prison sentence. Sussex Police also report that he was also ordered to complete 18 Rehabilitation Activity Requirement (RAR) sessions, with £85 costs and a £154 surcharge.

Speaking about the conviction, Sergeant Peter Swash from the Roads Policing Unit said: 

“Jones’s riding was highly reckless, travelling at grossly excessive speeds while concealing his registration plate in order to avoid detection.

“Officers were determined to catch him because of the risks he posed to other road users and of course to himself.

“So we set up an operation and were able to safely pursue and stop him.

“We are pleased that a dangerous rider has been taken off our roads.”
