A driver was caught speeding at 90mph past workers at the site of the new Aberdeen bypass during a clampdown by police.
Officers have been carrying out patrols following complaints about speeding near the work sites for the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route.
Police said a number of drivers have been stopped driving at “particularly high speeds” – with one motorist recorded at 90mph on the A90 near Balmedie, which has been reduced to a 50mph limit.
At the time the driver passed within two metres of workmen.
This driver, along with others stopped in similar circumstances, will be reported for dangerous driving.
Sergeant Steve Manson, from the trunk road patrol group, said: “In response to ongoing complaints, officers have continued to carry out patrols and checks in the area.
“It’s disappointing and worrying that drivers continue to ignore these restrictions.
“We have even stopped motorists overtaking our marked police cars at excessive speeds, while passing multiple temporary speed signs and workers at the edge of the carriageway.”
Police are urging people to follow the speed limits as AWPR workers are carrying out construction close to the road. The restrictions are in place in a bid to ensure their safety and the safety of drivers.
