MORE than 300 motorcyclists and car drivers were caught during a Cambridgeshire police enforcement campaign.
The month-long Think campaign saw traffic cops clamping down on offences ranging from texting while driving to speeding.
A total of 172 motorcyclists were stopped and 37 fixed penalty notices were issued for a range of offences including incorrect number plates and defective tyres.
A further 34 were given warnings for speeding, one bike was seized for no insurance and 14 were issued with a vehicle defect rectification scheme.
Four were registered for the ride scheme and two were arrested.
Two had been involved in a serious injury collision.
There were 180 drivers who were caught for either using a mobile phone while driving or not wearing a seatbelt.

Insp Bob Turner said: Road safety is vital for motorcyclists and it’s disappointing that so many are still riding too fast or being fined.
“While traffic officers were out on the county’s roads there were still motorists flouting the law.
“Roads can be a dangerous place when the law is not respected and adhered to. If we are to reduce the number of fatalities and casualties on the county’s roads it is viral people comply with the law.”
The Think campaign ran through April. May’s police campaign will concentrate on enforcing speed limits.
