A week of speed checks run by the Wells Neighbourhood Policing Team and Norfolk's Safety Camera Partnership ran from November 2 to 8.
Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) Becky Taylor and Andy Dixon joined together with the partnership covering Wells and surrounding parishes during the week.
More than 70 drivers were dealt with by either verbal warning, written warning or issued with a speeding ticket. Two drivers recorded speeding have been reported to court.
The partnership identified Wells Road in Walsingham as being of particular concern due to the number of speeding motorists and the road has now become a designated site for the camera van.
PCSO Becky Taylor said: “This was a very successful operation and one which will be repeated in the future.”
