Speeding drivers slapped with fines in crackdown
MORE than 200 drivers in Cambridgeshire were caught speeding during a week-long crackdown.
Between Monday, August 20, and Sunday, August 26, police issued 214 drivers with �60 fines for speeding.
The initiative was part of a campaign across Europe organised by TISPOL (Traffic Information System Police).
Officers issued 61 tickets for speeding in a 30mph zone, four tickets in a 40mph zone, 60 in a 50mph zone, 76 on a national speed limit and dual carriageway, seven on a motorway and six tickets for the travelling above the limit for the class of vehicle.
Casualty reduction officer PC Steve Gedny said: “It is shocking to see there are still a number of drivers who think it is acceptable to speed on the county’s roads.
