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.'
