Police in Norfolk have been targeting speeding drivers this week as part of an enforcement campaign which started on Monday.
Seven drivers were stopped yesterday for speeding after officers carried out checks on the A47 at Swaffham. The lowest speed recorded among those caught was 90mph while the fastest was 121mph.
Officers said they had been speaking with drivers during the campaign; aiming to highlight dangers of speeding and the consequences that driving above the limit can have.
Assistant Chief Constable Sarah Hamlin said: 'We work closely with our partners all-year round to target speeding drivers and these campaigns allow us to enforce the law while also raising awareness of the dangers and educating motorists.'
The Europe-wide campaign, co-ordinated by TISPOL, the European Traffic Police Network, runs until Sunday, with increased checks and enforcement across both counties.
