Teenager who drove 122mph on A11 told court he believed in Jesus
A teenager told a court that he believed in Jesus and was ashamed to be up before the magistrates, after pleading guilty to driving at 122mph on the A11.
Rodney Dunham, 19, from Salhouse Road, Rackheath, admitted speeding at Ketteringham, near Wymondham, on June 10, when he appeared before Norwich magistrates today.
The court heard that police carried out a speed check on his car just after midnight and recorded he was driving between 110 and 122mph, while the speed limit is 70mph.
Dunham, who represented himself in court, said: 'I'm very sorry about it and I should not have been travelling at that speed. I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and it's shameful for me to be here.'
He was banned from driving for 60 days, fined �175 plus a �15 victim surcharge, and must pay �65 costs.
