Car insurance policyholders who speed near Cambridge schools will be hearing from the police as part of a crackdown on offenders.

This is due to the city's first community Speedwatch campaign, which is targeting people who speed in 20mph zones.

According to the Cambridge News, drivers who go faster than 24mph will have their details logged and receive a letter from the police.

Roger Chatterton, co-chairman of the Brunswick and North Kite Residents' Association, tells the news provider that "there are a lot of elderly people and kids who cross the road and people who are doing 30mph-plus are not observing the crossings and not paying due care and attention".

Meanwhile, drivers in the Peak District appear to be doing their utmost to keep their car insurance quotes down by not speeding.

Results of community Speedwatch checks in two villages in the area identified that no-one was travelling above the speed limit.
