Eagle-eyed volunteers were handed speed guns by police in a bid to stop dangerous drivers by police in Ravenshead.
Members of the Arnold Neighbourhood Police Team (NPT) were joined by Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service and a group of volunteers to carry out speed checks on Longdale Lane.
The volunteers set out interactive signs and conducted checks with a speed gun.
The Police were on standby to stop any speeders which would then be sent to the fire truck to conduct an education session on the dangers of speeding.
A spokesman for Arnold NPT said: “This was a successful operation with cars decreasing their speeds considerably in the area.”
