With the summer weather already here, many motorists will be planning road trips and weekend getaways. However, according to the police, this does not give them the right to treat roads as a race track.
Police officers in north Wales have issued motorists a warning after a motorist was caught travelling at 124mph.
The driver was spotted in a rare Ferrari F40 worth over £1million.
The incident took place on a coastal road in north Wales.
The driver of the vehicle will now face losing his licence.

PC Martin Willis, who has been nicknamed “Motorway Martin”, took to social media to describe the incident.
He wrote: “Just another of the many drivers on the M62 tonight who have a complete disregard for road safety.
“The driver of this vehicle even had the audacity to try and claim that he was only doing 75mph.
“He already has six points on his licence (you’ve guessed it) for speeding. No words.”
However, this was not the fastest speed ever recorded on a British motorway.
Yorkshire Live reported that last year a driver was caught speeding at more than 150mph on the M62.
Humberside Police said the motorist, who was clocked at 154mph, had claimed he was “testing the car’s performance”.
It was one of the fastest speeds recorded by police on the road.
