A MOTHER who told police she was speeding because she was concentrating on watching her children eat, has been condemned by the chief of Cambridgeshire police. Chief constable, Julie Spence hit out at the speeding driver in one of her latest podcasts, describing the motorist's behaviour as 'incredible'.
Mrs Spence said the woman had been stopped by police during a recent anti-speed campaign.
"(She) used the excuse that she was concentrating on her children not spilling their food in the car," said Mrs Spence.
The chief constable also criticised another driver who stopped to tell police 'they hadn't caught her this time because she was obeying the limit'.

"I've said it before and I'll say it again they must think that we have nothing better to do, or that officers delight in catching errant drivers.
"Wrong. We'd be delighted if everyone stuck to the rules of the road."
Mrs Spence added: "The reckless and feckless minority who use our roads in such a cavalier fashion don't care.
"Anyone spotting them should have no misgivings about telling us who they are.
