A dangerous and utterly stupid thing to do.

A man in the UK has been jailed for over two years after recording footage of himself driving his car at 192 miles per hour.

According to ITV, 42-year old Shaun Davis has been jailed for 28 months and disqualified from driving for ten years after being found guilty of four counts of dangerous driving at Northampton Crown Court.

Davis had been accused of dangerous driving in high-speed cards, including BMWs and Audis on a number of occasions between 2012 and 2014 on roads around Northamptonshire.

Davis could not be seen in any of the videos and tried to claim that it wasn’t him driving, but after examining his mobile phone, there was deemed to be sufficient evidence to prosecute him.

“After examining Shaun Davis’ mobiles phones, we found multiple videos of him driving grossly in excess of the maximum national speed limit, with no regard for the safety of other motorists, pedestrians or himself,” said Detective Inspector Greg Maides of the East Midlands Special Operations Unit.

“We are satisfied with the result, and hope that this will serve as a deterrent to him in the future.”
