A driver who was clocked driving at 128mph on the A47 at Terrington St John, in Norfolk, was given a three month driving ban after admitting to magistrates there was no excuse.
James Wilson, 39, from Nassington near Peterborough, who was caught speeding in his Mercedes C320 on a 70mph stretch of road, also told Norwich magistrates that he was sorry.
Nicholas Kett, prosecuting, said Wilson was caught speeding at 2.15pm on August 23 last year.
Wilson, who represented himself in court, apologised for his driving and said it was “not reflective” of his usual driving standard and said “There is no excuse”.
Chairman of the bench Mary Wyndham said he had been well over the 70mph speed limit and as well as a three month ban he was ordered to pay a £600 fine and costs totalling £145.
