Speeding Aberdeen doctor escapes Perth driving ban

A doctor caught speeding at 100mph with his children in the car has escaped a driving ban because of his job.

Mohammed Alhous, 43, of Aberdeen, was stopped on the A9 between Perth and Stirling in April.

At Perth Sheriff Court, Alhous admitted careless driving and was fined £1,200 and given nine penalty points.

Sheriff Robert McCreadie said he would be allowed to keep his driving licence because it would be more difficult for him to do his job if he was banned.

Alhous had been taking his family to Blair Drummond Safari Park in his Mercedes C200 Kompressor Classic.
