A BANNED driver who went almost double the speed limit to flee police was jailed yesterday for 14 months.

Mohammed Rafiq, 50, waved at officers before accelerating away in Glasgow on June 15, last year.

The dad overtook vehicles and "made no intention of stopping or slowing down."

He was later caught after reaching a dead end in the north side of the city.

Rafiq pleaded guilty at Glasgow Sheriff Court to dangerous driving, driving while disqualified and without insurance.

The court heard officers on the M77 did a check on Rafiq's grey Lexus which found there was no insurance on the vehicle.

Emergency blue lights and sirens were activated for Rafiq to pull over and stop.

Prosecutor Carrie Stevens said: "The driver reacted to the lights and siren and had his driver window down.

"He waved the police vehicle past and the officer initiated a vehicle pursuit."

Rafiq initially went in excess of the 50 miles per hour speed limit.

Ms Stevens added: "The vehicle had no intention of stopping or slowing down."

Rafiq entered Dumbreck Road while traveling at 70 miles per hour.

He continued to change lanes and overtake vehicles.

Rafiq undertook vehicles at 60 miles per hour before reaching speeds of 80.

Ms Steven said: "Upon reaching junction 14 of the M8 eastbound the vehicle was travelling at 95 miles per hour in the 50 limit."

Rafiq almost collided with central reservations at speeds of 90 and crossed chevron markings near Cumbernauld Road.

Rafiq continued on into the north side of the city where he turned left onto West Graham Street.

Ms Stevens added: "He turned right onto Scott Street and onto a pedestrian underpass were he was forced to stop at a concrete bollard."

Rafiq left the vehicle and surrendered himself to officers.

It was found he was disqualified in December 2017 until Boxing Day 2022.

Pat Campbell, defending, told the court that Rafiq was lucky not to be facing "more serious charges."

Sheriff Iain Fleming banned Rafiq, of the city's Govanhill, from driving for four years on top of the jail sentence.
