A TOTAL of 19 drivers were stopped by police during a speed crackdown.
The check was held yesterday between 8am-11am in Winkfield Lane, North Street and Carnation Drive.
All three roads in Winkfield and Chavey Down have a 30mph limit and the drivers stopped were travelling between 34mph and 44mph.
Those travelling at 37mph and above were issued with a £60 fine and three penalty points on their licence.
Motorists driving between 34mph and 36mph were offered road-side education.
The checks were prompted by concerns from residents at a Neighbourhood Action Group (NAG) meeting and to Bracknell Forest Council.
PC Lucy McDonnell, neighbourhood specialist officer and PC Steve Mitchell led the crackdown with the help of special constables.
PC McDonnell said: "I am pleased that there are far less speeding motorists than in previous visits and the recorded speeds are lower.
"I believe that these checks are having an impact on the habitual speeders on these roads. However, I will not be complacent and will continue to arrange the speeding operations with the neighbourhood policing team in our efforts to reduce speed where drivers ignore the limits."
