Bradford man told police he was rushing home to see ill father

4:01pm Friday 19th February 2010
By Jenny Loweth »


A Bradford man reached speeds of more than 140mph on the M606 while being tracked by the police helicopter, a Court heard.

A short time earlier, Aqib Hussain, 33, had been stopped by officers on the M1 for driving at 109mph in his powerful Nissan Skyline.

Hussain, of Washington Street, Girlington, told the officers he was on a mercy dash to be with his father in Bradford who had suffered a suspected heartache.

The police issued him with a Notice of Intended Prosecution and told him to slow down.

The Nissan was then spotted by the crew of the West Yorkshire Police helicopter and tracked with a camera.

Film of the incident was played at Bradford Crown Court today showing an aerial view of Hussain speeding towards the city at 3.30am on March 3 last year.

Prosecutor Duncan Ritchie said he averaged 142mph on the M606.

He was doing double the speed limit on Mayo Avenue and was stopped and arrested at the Jacob’s Well roundabout.

Hussain’s solicitor, Anne-Marie Hutton, conceded he had driven at “an extraordinarily high speed”.

She said his father had suffered a suspected heart attack and needed to be persuaded to get into an ambulance and go for hospital treatment.

Mr Hussain senior had passed away three months later, the court heard.

Hussain’s speedometer on the hired imported car was in kilometres and he had struggled to believe he was going that fast, Miss Hutton said.

Hussain was consumed by remorse had put in a prompt guilty plea to the charge of dangerous driving.

The judge, Recorder Tim Hirst, told Hussain: “There is a degree of arrogance in being warned by the police on the M1 and going on to drive at greater speeds.

“One gets there pretty quickly at 70mph, without having to do 140.”

He sentenced Hussain to 32 weeks’ imprisonment, suspended for 18 months, with supervision. He was ordered to do 100 hours’ unpaid work and banned from driving for two years.

i reckon it's got to be a R35 GTR as it was "Hired" and the reporting is just poor

Ouch... speeding and at dangerous speed, but that is still pretty harsh...
8 month is a long time...

Sustained 140mph is pretty well build engine, I would of thought the engine may overheat and blow at such long sustained high RPM.

It says 'suspended for 18 months' - doesn't that mean he's not actually going to prison unless he does something else wrong in that time??

I am afraid the penalties are getting harsher and harsher. But I have to say, at 140mph everything pulls out in front of you, it can't be argued that isn't a dangerous speed.

"..Sustained 140mph is pretty well build engine, I would of thought the engine may overheat and blow at such long sustained high RPM."

...the M606 is about 2 miles long, with about 1/4 mile corner, rest pretty straight, so not sustained for too long, ...140 was a good effort though,..apparently a good R32 will do 160ish going up there...

Well This rescue your relative thing, is OK if you have to drive max 10minutes to your home and you actually respond to an emergency call of help from your wife, child, parents, relatives dying ex . . . .
In this case good old paps was allready assisted by hospital staff and had just to be hit on the head to step in to the ambulance.

Thank god he didn`t crash and kill somebody . . .

What a load of bollox.

I cant see any harm in that at all. Its just pathetic that some toffee nosed twat of a judge pontificates about how fat you can get there at 70nph - lets see how quick he gets his bentley upto when you hold his favourite badger baiting beagle to ransom or he runs out of prune juice in the middle of a session with Max Mosely and the girls !!!

:D :D
