Businessman with ‘ThIIckk’ number plate caught doing 97mph on motorway in £207,000 Ferrari

A BUSINESSMAN was clocked doing 97mph in a car with the number plate TH11CKK.John Perez, 37, had previously notched up 17 points for speeding in just one year.

He told cops he was going fast because he was “just tired of driving”.

His £207,000 Ferrari 488 Spyder was stopped on the M1 in North London in October last year, a court heard.

He admitted speeding and illegally altering the plate by having the letters too close to each other and effectively spelled “thick”.

No reason was given for the car reg adjustment.

Perez – who sells static caravans and was said to drive 60,000 miles a year — was spared a driving ban in 2020 after arguing it would cause exceptional hardship.

This time Perez, of Lytham St Annes, Lancs, was banned for three months and fined a total of £1,521 by Preston magistrates.

After the Businessman hearing, Jack Cousens, head of roads policy for the AA, said:

“Speed kills and for someone to tot up so many points suggests they don’t really care about their own safety or the safety of other road users.”

CEO of road safety charity RoadPeace Nick Simmons said: “Our members are only too aware of how dangerous and unacceptable this sort of driving is and the devastating impact it can have​.

“We are relieved to see his licence taken away and only wish it had happened sooner.”
