A speeding driver was caught travelling at 110mph on the A14 - 40mph above the limit for the road.

Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Firearms Policing Team said they issued a traffic offence report after recording the driver on the dual carriageway at Ipswich during the evening of Friday, September 7.

They took to Twitter to brand the level of speed as “unacceptable”.

Speeding is one of what police term as the ‘fatal four’ offences, with more than 1,100 drivers caught speeding in a week-long campaign by police in Suffolk earlier this year.

Speaking after that enforcement action earlier in the year, Chief Inspector Kris Barnard, head of the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads Policing and Firearms Operations Unit, said: “Speeding is recognised as one of the ‘fatal four’ offences which leads to people being killed or serious injured in a collision along with drink driving, using a mobile phone and not wearing a seatbelt.

“Drivers should adjust their speed to suit the conditions on the road and be aware of hazards.

“The higher your speed, the less time you have to react. Think…could you stop in time if something unexpected happened in front of you?”
