After a week-long crackdown on speeding, more than two-hundred and forty drivers have been stopped.

The Tri-Force Roads Policing Unit in Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire & Hertfordshire told us most of the drivers they caught were "going excessively fast."
 
Sergeant Ian Manley says: "People will justify that journey just warrants them going a couple of miles over the speed limit because they're late for a meeting or picking up the children. 
 
Unfortuantely that justification becomes a norm or a behavioural change. And that's what we're trying to change."  
 
He says they've been concentrating most of their patrols on the A47, where there have been fatal crashes this year.
