They were all stopped and reported.

During the same patrol, officers gave tickers to six further drivers as they were caught speeding along the Wendover Road in the same town.

Each motorist went over the 30mph limit, with one commuter going at 44mph.

The crackdown on November 22 also saw two drivers get reported after they were caught with no insurance, failing to wear a seatbelt and using a mobile phone.

This particular motorist had already been carrying points, with the authorities confirming that ‘it’s more than likely’ that they’ll lose their license.

The second driver who was stopped by the police was behind the wheel of a 7.5-tonne lorry.

They were driving without insurance and there were concerns of ‘injury being caused’ due to ‘distribution of its load’.
