Motorists have been clocked doing double the speed limit after speed activated signs were installed in a village on the outskirts of Norwich.
Spixworth Parish Council has confirmed the SAM2 sign is now up and being used with the first set of results from Crostwick Lane showing some drivers had exceeded the 30mph limit, with some reaching 60mph.
All of the data collected has been passed to the police.
The locations the sign is to go in Spixworth include Crostwick Lane, Buxton Road, Park Road, Lillian Road and Ivy Road.
Earlier this month Norfolk County Council announced £370,000 worth of funding for road improvments had been approved for 136 projects across the county, some of which included speed activated signs.
