An unlicensed driver has been stopped by police doing more than 100mph on the A47.
The driver was stopped on the A47 at Terrington St John on Saturday morning after being clocked doing 107mph.
Officers from the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads Policing Unit seized the car and the driver has been reported.
It comes as police in the county prepare for a week-long enforcement campaign targeting speeding drivers.
From Monday drivers in Norfolk will see an increased amount of checks and enforcement across the county.
Chief Inspector Kris Barnard, head of the joint Norfolk and Suffolk Roads Policing Unit, said: “Speeding is one of the ‘fatal four’ offences which makes you more likely to be killed or seriously injured in a collision - alongside drink driving, driving whilst using a mobile phone and not wearing a seatbelt.
“All too often officers have to deal with the results of drivers speeding, which can be devastating, with families and friends being left behind to pick up their lives after the event. One fatality on our roads is one too many.”
Motorists caught speeding will be issued with a TOR (Traffic Offence Report) and face a fine, points on their licence or even court action. Some drivers can opt to take part in a speed awareness course.
