One driver failed to stop and enquiries are on-going to trace the man who will be dealt with appropriately said the NPT.

The remaining drivers received words of advice and education.

A spokesperson for the NPT said: "We will be back again soon, however, despite that please remember it is a speed LIMIT and not a TARGET."
