All of the 40 drivers were reported after being caught doing speeds ranging from 53 mph to 69mph. Officers also seized one van for having no insurance.

The road has seen a number of major collision in recent years and the speed limit was further reduced to 30mph between the Maskew Avenue roundabout on Bourges Boulevard and the Mounsteven Avenue roundabout on Lincoln Road in 2020.
