British actor and comedian Rik Mayall was convicted of speeding for the second time in less than a week yesterday (07JUL03).

The 45-year-old DROP DEAD FRED star was caught on camera doing 104 kilometres per hour (65 miles per hour) in his MERCEDES in a 80 kilometre-per-hour (50 mile-per-hour) roadwork zone on England's M5 motorway last November (02).

Rik was fined $160 (GBP100) and given three penalty points on his licence - just three days after he was banned from driving for 90 days after admitting driving along the same motorway at 180 kilometres per hour (113 miles per hour) on 20 April (03).
