A SCOOTER rider stopped for speeding told police he was too inexperienced to know what the speed limit was.

Dorset Police's No Excuse Team was patrolling in West Dorset yesterday when they stopped the rider.

A spokesman for the team said: "A Motorini 125cc was recorded at 60mph in a 40 zone.

"The young rider when asked what the speed limit was replied: 'I'm an inexperienced rider, I don't look at the speed signs so how am I meant to know the speed limit?'

"He's already on six points with a another three for this, hopefully he will look at the signs now."

In Marshwood the team also recorded a Lexus LC500 at 48 MPH in a 30 zone.
