Motorists are being warned that “speed limits remain unchanged” after a driver was stopped doing 55mph in a 30mph limit.
With the Norfolk and Suffolk Safety Camera and Central Ticket Office reporting last month that a reduction in traffic during the coronavirus lockdown had opened up the roads for some to abuse speed limits, a motorist was stopped on the A149 at Rollesby, near Great Yarmouth, on Saturday, May 9.
The Norfolk & Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing eastern team stopped the driver, who was clocked at travelling 55mph in a 30mph limit.
The team Tweeted: “PC880 from the East team has just stopped a driver on the A149 at Rollesby for travelling at 55mph in a 30 limit.
“As we keep saying, there maybe less traffic on the road but speed limits remain unchanged.”
According to Norfolk police, since the start of lockdown in March there has been a “dramatic” increase in drivers hitting the 100mph mark on Norfolk’s roads.
