Sheldon Hill (25) of Slate Barn Drove, Whittlesey, was driving his BMW M3 on The Serpentine in Hampton, Peterborough, when he was spotted by police on June 18 last year.

Officers said he was seen travelling at excessive speed when changing lanes, he was not using indicators and was undercutting other drivers before returning to the same lane he was originally in.

The officers also saw another driver was forced to hit the brakes to avoid a collision after Hill pulled out on a roundabout, and they also saw him refuse to wait in traffic - cutting across white lines to avoid waiting.

Hill was also found to be driving with no insurance.

He appeared at Peterborough Magistrates’ Court earlier this month, after pleading guilty to driving with no insurance, and being found guilty of driving without due consideration for other road users.

He was fined £600, , and was ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £60 and costs of £300. Six points were put on his licence, but he was not given a totting disqualification, because of the impact on his employers, and the impact on elderly family members.
