Three men have been banned from the road after being found guilty of driving dangerously in Burntwood.
Michael Williams, 27, of Holt Crescent, Cannock, 25-year-old Daniel Lester of Cannock Road, Cannock, and 28-year-old Jay Beddow of East Butts Road, Rugeley, were all handed community orders, disqualified from driving for 12 months and asked to pay court costs.
It comes after an incident on 21st March when they were spotted travelling at speed along Miners Way and Milestone Way.
They were travelling at 100mph in a 50mph zone before being stopped by police.
PC Craig Beardsley said:
“The three men in question here were driving dangerously through a residential area.
“This type of driving is unacceptable and causes a real danger to other road users.
“Thankfully we were able to get these drivers stopped very quickly, reducing the risk of serious injury.
“Burntwood has suffered with incidents like these for quite some time and we, alongside local partners, continue to do all we can to prevent people from car cruising, driving dangerously or committing anti-social behaviour on our roads.
“We know there is great concern within the local community around such incidents and we ask them to continue supporting us in ensuring we take these dangerous motorists off our roads.”PC Craig Beardsley, Staffordshire Police
