Motorists in Cambourne were caught speeding at a rate of one per minute during a 90-minute crackdown on the crime, a local news source has reported.

The Falmouth Packet has stated that the scheme took place in an area where roadworks were being carried out and the speed limit had been dropped from 70mph to 50mph.

It could be that the 95 drivers caught have difficulty picking up a car insurance policy in the future, as cover firms could view their actions as indicative of a poor road user and increase costs.

"Such reckless driving could easily result in the loss of control of the vehicle, with the potential outcome of serious injuries or fatalities," commented local police constable and road casualty reduction officer Mark Leath.

This comes as Haringey Council statistics show that the number of deaths and injuries on Haringey roads went down to 78 over the course of 2007, the Hornsey Journal has reported.
