Officers carried out the checks in Main Street Calverton.
Nottinghamshire Police said:
‘We were there for just 30 minutes and managed to catch three cars being driven in excess of the 30mph speed limit. The cars were recorded at 37, 38 and 39 mph; all 3 drivers were issued with a Traffic Offence Report (TOR).
‘We intend to get around the borough to places where speeding is an issue so let us know where you would like to see us!
‘We do this to save lives; the money doesn’t go towards our Christmas party as a few believe.’
