Nearly 100 motorists have been caught speeding on two busy dual carriageways in Aberdeen in the space of two hours.
The North East Safety Camera Partnereship (Nescamp) monitored the A956 Ellon Road, near Gordon Barracks and found 47 drivers travelling above the 30mph limit.
They then monitored the A96 Inverurie road for an hour and a half, near Bucksburn Police Station, which resulted in another 52 motorists being caught driving above the limit.
The highest speed detected on either road was 53mph with many driving in the "high 40s into 50s" according to Nescamp.
All the drivers will now be sent notices of intended prosecution and face have three points added to their licences and £60 fines.
Julie Smith, of Nescamp, said: "To detect almost 100 offences during three and half hours of enforcement is very, very disappointing.
"I would like to stress that dual carriageways within the city do not automatically have a 40mph speed limit. In fact there are over ten such roads in Aberdeen which are subject to a 30mph limit."
"Nescamp have issued numerous press releases in recent years to highlight the speed limit of city dual carriageways and have placed advertisements in local newspapers to try and remind people of the limits.
"Nescamp do not want to catch people out, we want to slow people down. I would urge motorists to drive at 30mph or less on city dual carriageways if they are in any doubt about the limit. The speed limits are in place for the safety of all road users."
