On Friday, July 29, the Derbyshire Roads Policing Unit spotted a speeding driver in Chesterfield.

The DRPU tweeted: “This driver was taking the term ‘fast food’ literally and failed to see our speed check at Whittington Hill whilst doing 45mph in a 30mph limit.”

The delivery driver saw their car seized by the DRPU.

Officers eventually stopped the motorist, and discovered that he had no business cover on the insurance for the vehicle he was using to make deliveries. The driver’s car was subsequently seized.
