YouTube video lands biker with road ban Biker off the road for twelve months.
Michael Paul McIver posted a video he recorded while travelling on a new motorbike. In the video, the speedometer showed that he was travelling up to 120.6mph, over 11 miles in Denbighshire along the A5 near Corwen, and the A5104 at Llandegla.

The 25 year old was ashmed of his actions depicted in the video, Prestatyn magistrates heard. He has been banned from driving for a year, and ordered to carry out 200 hours of community service.

The prosecutor conceded that the speed was the only factor that he was being punished for, as the video showed that the bike was well controlled over the journey. Nevertheless, McIver accepted that his actions were dangerous.

It is not the first - and is not likely to be the last - incriminating video posted on YouTube showing a driver smashing the speed limit. Why do they post the videos?

He should have claimed it wasn't him, but someone else and he just posted the video because he thought it was cool...unless he was showing himself in the video or something.
