A 21 year old man, who was driving in Suffolk was clocked driving his car at 154mph on the A11.
The driver, Louie Hewitt was behind the wheel of his Seat Leon Cupra when he was stopped by the police.
The officers in the case have said that they believed it to be the highest recorded speeding incident on Suffolk roads.
Hewitt appeared at Bury St Edmunds where he was ordered to pay £365 and was banned from driving for 56 days.
On hearing the sentence and length of ban, Suffolk police released a statement that the length of disqualification was “disappointing”.
Inspector David Giles, from the roads policing unit said: “I don’t think it is enough at all. I’m really disappointed frankly.
“It’s not a real incentive to stick within the speed limit, in my opinion.”
Gary Rae from the road safety charity Brake! stated; “Drivers who recklessly speed put not only their own lives, but those of other road users, at severe risk.
“Breaking the speed limit by such a shocking amount shows an appalling disregard for the safety of innocent road users.
“We are disappointed to see such a lenient sentence in this case – drivers who selfishly flout the law need to be punished accordingly.”
