A spokesperson from Cambridgeshire Constabulary said: “Speedwatch is a national initiative where members of local communities, with our support and supervision, record details of speeding vehicles using the approved detection devices.” 

Registered keepers of vehicles found to be breaking the speed limit during speed watches are contacted by letter. 

The letter explains the potential risks and consequences of their dangerous behaviour. 

The spokesperson added: “Repeat offenders receive a visit from the local officers and could face criminal prosecution.”
