MOTORISTS who speed along a busy country road between two villages are being targeted in a new police operation.
Officers are stepping up measures to crack down on drivers who flout the speed limit on Codicote Road, between Welwyn and Codicote.
The road carries a 30mph limit, with one 40mph section - although cars regularly zip along at much higher speeds.

But it's speeding that is the main problem.
