“We have no words” that was the reaction from one police officer after catching a motorists driving at more than 130mph on the A55 in Flintshire today.  ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The driver was clocked doing 131mph on the westbound side of the A55 at Caerwys. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

It prompted an officer from the North Wales Roads Policing Unit to tweet: “we have no words… ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“131mph is unacceptable and we don’t even need to tell you about the consequences of crashing at that speed!” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The driver has been summonsed to “explain his actions to the court.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

North Wales Police has warned drivers it will take action against anybody found to be exceeding the speed limits after roads have become quieter as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Far fewer vehicles have been recently using the roads since the Government urged people to stay at home to reduce the spread of COVID-19. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Police say some drivers have seen this as an opportunity to speed excessively. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
