Suffolk police recorded 1,924 motorists going over the speed limit over a two week-long enforcement campaign. 1,844 of those caught speeding were cars, 58 were vans, 18 were lorries, three were motorcycles and one was a bus. Most were caught by fixed or mobile cameras, the rest by officers on patrol.
Chief Inspector Jon Chapman, Head of the Joint Roads and Armed Policing Team, said: “Speed limits are in place for a reason – the limit is set at the maximum safe speed to travel on a particular stretch of road.
“Drivers shouldn’t use these limits as targets; there are always other factors to consider including other road users, levels of traffic and weather conditions.
“The faster you are travelling, the less time you have to react to the unexpected and stop safely.”
