LONDON, Aug. 6 (UPI) -- A British financial company said the top speeder busted by police in the country was a motorcyclist driving at 152 mph.

LV, which offers services including insurance and investments, said its freedom of information requests to police departments across the country found the top speeder was a Yamaha-riding motorcyclist caught driving 152 mph on a 70 mph-limit stretch of A27 in Binstead, England, while Tayside Police said their top speeders were a pair of motorists going 149 mph and 141 mph on the A90, The Daily Telegraph reported Monday.

"There is a significant difference between those drivers who are a few miles over the limit and those who are driving dangerously at breakneck speeds," LV managing director John O'Roarke said. "Driving at such high speeds is very dangerous and dramatically increases the chance of failing to react quick enough in an emergency."
