A total of 1,567 drivers have been caught speeding in Norfolk and Suffolk - during a week long speeding campaign (18-24 August).

Chief Inspector Chris Spinks, head of the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads Policing Unit, 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.

"That said, it doesn't mean the speed limit should be a target; there are always other factors to consider including other road users, levels of traffic and weather conditions."

Motorists caught speeding face a £100 fixed penalty notice and three points on their licence, or may have the option to complete a Speed Awareness course. Under certain circumstances drivers could be taken to court where they may face larger fines and disqualification from driving.
