As a part of the action day, the camera safety partnership team were active around the Downham Market road network. They caught 115 drivers committing speeding offences with the highest speed recorded at 109mph.
Insp Will Drummond of the Joint Roads and Armed Policing said: “Our aim is to reduce the number of those killed or seriously injured on the roads.
“Action days allow us to review a sample of vehicles travelling in the area and advise drivers of issues which could increase their chances of being involved in a collision.
“It is very disappointing to see three drivers were arrested for being under the influence of drugs and reinforces the need for such operations.”
