A roads policing officer has warned driving offences known as the fatal four are 'really not worth the risk' after catching one driver far over the drink driving limit, and another travelling at more than 120mph.
The first happened at around 2pm, when PC Steve Lee was called to the A47 at North Burlingham.
An off-duty Ministry of Defence police officer, thought to be based at Bacton gas terminal, had followed a vehicle driving erratically along the southern bypass.
Once PC Lee arrived at the scene the driver was given a breathalyser test and was almost five times the legal limit.
Then around 8pm a driver was caught travelling at more than 120mph on the A47 between Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft.

PC Lee said: 'We are out on the roads of Norfolk and Suffolk and we will continue to target the fatal four offences. Excess speed, alcohol and drugs, not wearing a seatbelt and using a mobile phone are the four main reasons why people are seriously injured or killed on our roads.
'Please think when you get behind the wheel of your car or on your motorbike. It's really not worth the risk.'
