MOTORISTS in Huntingdon are said to be ignoring speeding laws after 32 drivers were stopped for the offence during a two hour police check.
The operation was run on Sunday June 10 in Hartford and the Oxmoor areas of the town following complaints from residents about speeding in the area.
During the checks 32 drivers were given verbal warnings as part of the education and inform approach of the operation. Officers will now be carrying out regular checks in the area and issuing on the stop fines to anyone caught speeding.
Pc Luke Coulson said: "Speeding is an emotive issue for many of the residents of Hartford and the Oxmoor and an issue that officers will continue to tackle.
