Police clocked three drivers in just half an hour speeding in Calverton as they tackled lockdown racers during a campaign against those breaking the speed limits.
Officers were out with the speed gun on Main Street following a number of complaints about speeding.
A spokesman said: “We were there for just 30 minutes and managed to catch three cars being driven in excess of the 30mph speed limit.
“The cars were recorded at 37, 38 and 39 mph; all 3 drivers were issued with a Traffic Offence Report (TOR).
They added: “We intend to get around the borough to places where speeding is an issue so let us know where you would like to see us.
“We do this to save lives; the money doesn’t go towards our Christmas party, as a few drivers believe..”
Police have carried out similar patrols in Arnold and Carlton Hill over recent months in abid to cut down on those speeding on the borough’s roads.
