Suffolk police launched Operation Guardian on Friday with 16 observation posts around west Suffolk.
More than 200 motorists were stopped during the seven hour operation, run jointly with trading standards and HM Revenue and Customs.
More than 100 fixed penalty notices were issued.
Chief Inspector Neal Atwell said: "The aim of this operation was to raise the awareness of offences that can and often do lead to serious injuries or deaths.
“We wanted to get the message out that if you continue to speed, use your mobile phone while driving, fail to wear your seat belt or drink and drive, you will get caught. This is proven by the results of this operation.
