Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson has been penalized for speeding for the first time in 30 years.
Jeremy Clarkson wrote in the Sun that he had been caught by a fixed camera while travelling between Whitby and London.
He said: “Sadly, I was going too quickly for the speed awareness course to be an option.”
Jeremy Clarkson said he had written last month in “blind fury” about the amount of speed cameras on the route.
“Well, it seems one of them got to me,” he added.
His admission comes just weeks after he and his Top Gear team caused controversy during filming in Argentina for using a number plate that appeared to refer to the Falklands war.
Jeremy Clarkson has said the number plate was a coincidence and the program’s producer has denied it was a stunt.
In 2008, Jeremy Clarkson, who lives near Chipping Norton in Oxfordshire, was criticized for claiming he had driven at 186mph on a public road.
