A spokesperson said: “Due to the rules and policies in place we are limited as to what locations we can conduct such checks with enforcement but we try and get out as frequently as possible with our other demands on our time.

“We find that we receive a high number of complaints for speed related matters and we will try and address these when we can.

“We thank those who were driving safely, sensibly and within the law.”
