Two-day speeding operation results in 400 prosecutions
A two day police crackdown on speeding across Devon and Cornwall has ended in 400 prosecutions.
The operation targeted class-restricted vehicles on national speed limit roads on 30 January and 26 February.
Of those detected, 79% were classified as light-goods vehicles, restricted to 50mph on a single carriageway and 60mph on a dual carriageway.
Natalie Hatswell of Peninsula Road Safety Partnership said drivers needed to "be aware" of further operations.
Ms Hatswell said that although these operations targeted class-restricted vehicles, some cars were identified as travelling at speeds exceeding 100mph and will be dealt with in court.
Latest data, released by the Department for Transport showed a national increase in the speeds of these lights goods vehicles and a link between those increased average speeds and collision rates.
Ms Hatswell said: "Drivers of these class restricted vehicles need to be aware that we will continue to carry out further operations at various sites across Devon and Cornwall."
