Police are hunting this biker who has beaten dozens of speed cameras by driving past them at high speeds while covering his number plate – with his HAND.

The motorbike rider has been snapped numerous times breaking speed limits on a Yamaha 125cc – but has eluded capture every time.

Police in Plymouth, Devon, say he knows where all the speed cameras are and puts his hand over his registration plate whenever he speeds passed them.

A police spokesman said he has committed ”several motoring offences” and is risking lives by driving one-handed at high speeds.

He said: ”The motorcyclist has repeatedly driven through speed camera sites at excess speed and used his hand to obscure his registration from the camera.

”This rider has committed various offences in the Plymouth area and needs to be located and spoken to by the police.

”If the rider were to fall off whilst not in control of the motor bike and at the speeds recorded the consequences could be fatal, not only for the rider, but for any other road users who just happen to be close by.”
