122mph speeder jailed after forum boasts

A motorcyclist has been jailed for eight months after boasting on a forum about lying to police over a speeding offence. Andrew Kelly, 37, was filmed speeding at 122mph by a speed camera van but told police a prospective buyer had been test-riding the bike at the time.

If he had pulled out and killed a motorcyclist whilst using his phone in a car he would still be free. Speed on its own isn't dangerous, only inappropriate speed. The lesson here is keep your mouth shut, he talked his way into prison.

Let's not get caught up

in a "speeders being picked on" argument here. The idiot was jailed for perverting the course of justice, not for speeding.

Looking at the Police video, it looks to me like the other biker was doing the same speed, so was he ticketed too?

Speed?

So he was jailed for a combination of perverting the course of justice (twice, for which an MP got a prison sentence) & speeding (once). Not so much to do with the speeding... just being foolish afterwards.

How stupid can people be???

Do you people still not realise how the internet works.....???

If you post a video on youtube.....people can see it.

If you write stuff on the internet.....people can read it.

If you manage to get away with something you don't tell a soul! Ever.

People like this deserve everything they get. Twice.

I disagree with Perverting with this sentencing

I've always found it strange that a "Criminal" can lie about their whereabouts on the night in question without being charged with Perverting the Course of Justice. If was my understanding that this was intend as an offence for somebody giving false testimony to aid a criminal not the criminal themselves.

Staggering naivety

Some people throw common sense out of the window when it comes to bolstering their ego on social media sites. As others have said this person was done for perverting the course of justice (I believe it can involve a prison sentence of up to 12 years).

In some ways social media sites are now akin to darwin awards in that the most idiotic, naive individuals cause themselves loads of problems by NOT thinking through possible consequence of bragging to complete strangers on  social media sites.
