During the operation eleven motorists were stopped, with eight drivers being reported for summons.
Sgt Steve Stuttard, who led the operation, said: “We take reports we receive from our community seriously and we will take the appropriate actions.
“My message to drivers is the speed limit is there for a reason and they need to keep to it. “We will continue to conduct similar operations at various times and those exceeding the speed limit will find themselves on a driver awareness course or having to attend court.”
