Chief Inspector Kris Barnard, head of the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads Policing and Firearms Operations Unit, said: 'Drivers should adjust their speed to suit the conditions on the road and be aware of hazards. The higher your speed, the less time you have to react. Think…could you stop in time if something unexpected happened in front of you?'

Motorists caught speeding are issued with a TOR (Traffic Offence Report) and face a fine, points on their licence or even court action.
