Mert Tanay, from Enfield, was filmed by police in an unmarked police car weaving in and out of traffic on the M20 in Kent, overtaking officers and then reaching a maximum speed of 140mph.
However, not only was Tanay speeding but when police officers pulled him over at Junction 9 at Ashford he was found to have had a six-year-old boy as his front-seat passenger. Officers reported that the boy was left “very shaken” by the experience.
Tanay has now been banned from driving for three years and was told to carry out 50 hours’ unpaid work after admitting dangerous driving at Canterbury Crown Court.
Kent Police have condemned his actions stating ‘Tanay’s actions on what is a busy motorway fell far below what would be expected of a competent and careful driver’.
