Special Constables from Ely, Tom Howard and Mark Gillibrand, clocked two drivers on Ely Road, between Ely and Littleport driving at 43 and 48mph in a 30mph zone this week.
Both drivers were pulled over and received Traffic Offence Reports which could result in a fine or a court appearance - which may include a driving ban.
On Ely Road in Little Downham, two more drivers were stopped - travelling at 36mph and 38 mph in a 30mph zone. Both drivers were accelerating prematurely towards the 60 mph area.
Special Constable Howard said: “Drivers ought to be lowering speeds before they enter the 30mph zones, and they should wait for the de-restriction signs before they put their foot down again.
“The 30mph areas are the most dangerous zones with regard to vehicle versus pedestrian collisions - and where such accidents happen it is almost always in a built up area.
