A local speedwatch group in Devon have said that despite catching 10 per cent of vehicles in a 40mph zone exceeding the speed limit they were more alarmed to find cyclists doing between 30 to 35mph.

Volunteers in Tavistock, West Devon, were out monitoring excessive speeds by a local bus stop and caught five out of 53 vehicles going over the speed limit in a 40mph zone, with one driver caught speeding at 50mph.
