Random speed checks are being carried out throughout the Thames Valley this week as part of a Europe-wide crackdown on speeding motorists.
All police forces across Europe are taking part in a week-long campaign to tackle speeding concerns through to Sunday, organised by TISPOL, the European traffic police network.

Last year's campaign saw 814 drivers dealt with at the roadside in the Thames Valley.
