Hundreds of drivers were caught speeding during a week-long enforcement campaign in Norfolk.
Officers from Norfolk and Suffolk Roads Policing Unit and vans from the Norfolk Safety Camera Partnership were deployed across the county as part of a European-wide campaign.
During the scheme a total of 1,628 drivers were caught speeding, 1,375 were caught by fixed or mobile camera sites while 253 were caught by officers on patrol.
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?'
