MORE than 2,000 motorists were caught speeding in 30mph zones in Cambridgeshire in the last month.
Officers in marked and unmarked cars issued 3,165 motorists with fixed penalty fines as part of Cambridgeshire police’s Think! campaign between January 1 and 31.
As well as the 2,006 caught speeding on 30mph roads, 123 tickets were given to motorists in a 40mph zone, 354 in a 50mph zone and 95 in 60mph zone. A further 153 motorists were fined for speeding on dual carriageways.
PC Steve Gedny, casualty reduction officer, said: “It is disappointing that there are still drivers out there who think they can speed.
“Excessive speeding and inappropriate speed are just some of the factors which can result in collisions, sometimes fatal.
