Prison Time for Motorcyclist Who Captured Dangerous High Speed Stunts on Head Cam

UK police this week released video showing a series of dangerous, high speed motorcycle stunts after three men were convicted of dangerous driving.

Thomas Ettridge, Thomas Hayden and Matthew McLaven received sentences of 10 months, six months and four months respectively, with McLaven’s sentence suspended. All three were disqualified from driving for at least two years, police said.

During their investigations of reports of dangerous driving and a collision in East Sussex on April 20, 2019, police seized the head-mounted camera of Ettridge, which showed a number of stunts. Police said they were releasing the video “to raise awareness of the real risks associated with dangerous driving.”

In a written statement, Sussex police said, “the speeds and general aggressive manner of the riding identified are simply ridiculous and leave no room for error should the slightest of issues have occurred.

“Not only are the riders risking their own lives, but also those of the other road users around them throughout these journeys.

“This sentencing should act as a stark reminder of the consequences of such behavior on the roads in Sussex." Credit: Sussex Police via Storyful
