Northumbria Police are taking part in 'Operation Dragoon' which is taking place right across Europe and will target speeding drivers.
The activity is being coordinated by the European Traffic Police Network (TISPOL) and will run from Monday, August 21, to Sunday, August 27.
Excessive speeding is among the three road killers and is a leading cause of road accidents in young people aged between 21 and 29; with the majority of collisions occurring on 30 MPH roads.
The force will have mobile speed cameras out in so called 'hotspots' across the region throughout the week.
People who know that someone is a dangerous drivers or is drink driving are being encouraged to get in touch with the police - calling 999 if it is an emergency.
