A spokesperson for Gloucestershire Police said: “We are committed to keeping people safe on the roads.
“We are taking appropriate action against those who put others at risk by driving at excessive speeds or in an otherwise dangerous manner.
“The Constabulary is part of Gloucestershire’s Road Safety Partnership, which relaunched earlier this month (December).
“Speeding is one of the causes of road deaths and injury in the county, along with using a mobile phone while driving, not wearing a seat belt and drink or drug driving.
“The Constabulary’s mobile Camera Enforcement Team regularly conducts speed checks at a number of locations.
“The locations are regularly publicised so that people know we are out on the roads carrying out enforcement.
“Speed limits are set for a reason – to keep people safe – and it is every driver’s responsibility to observe them.
“Just driving a few miles per hour above the speed limit can mean the difference between life and death.
“The faster someone drives, the less time they have to stop or react if something unexpected happens.”
