A motorist from Dewsbury has been jailed after he led police on a chase reaching up to 100 mph.
Leeds Crown Court heard the West Yorkshire Police helicopter had to take over the pursuit when Mohammed Hussain pulled away from officers following him on to the M1.
Eventually he was stopped and arrested at Woolley Edge Services when they discovered he had no licence or insurance to drive the Ford Focus.
Kathryn Stuckey prosecuting said the chase began when he was seen on the Ring Road at Dewsbury in the early hours of May 21.
Police illuminated the blue lights after he picked up speed in Crackenedge Lane and accelerated to 50mph in a 30mph zone but he ignored them and drove on.
After turning left into Mill Lane he drove into Back Station Road at Batley before reaching an area of roadworks and temporary lights creating a single carriageway.
He was then seen in Mill Lane before increasing his speed in Leeds Road driving towards Dewsbury narrowly missing a collision with a van.
Officers recorded their speed at 90mph and could not keep up with Hussain who was doing up to 100mph pulling away from them on the Dewsbury Ring Road.
They could see his red tail lights ahead but lost sight of him and it was then the helicopter was used to follow his progress on to the motorway. He did keep to 50mph in a restricted stretch but was then caught at the service station.
Anthony Moore representing Hussain said fortunately no one was injured. He was still young and the probation service believed they could work with him to address his attitude.
Hussain, 23, of Orchard Street, Savile Town, Dewsbury, admitted dangerous driving, having no insurance or licence and was sentenced to eight months in prison and disqualified for two years.
