Drivers are being urged to stick to the speed limits as Cambridgeshire police take to the roads for extra speed checks as part of a national campaign.

Officers will be doing extra speed checks next week as part of a countrywide campaign called TISPOL.

The checks will be made across Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire and is the second and last speed campaign of the year.

Insp Mark Rogers said: “I would urge anyone to drive within the lawful speed limits.

“However, I would like to point out that it is not always appropriate to drive at the speed limit depending on the road conditions.
