A total of 74 vehicles were stopped, 59 breath tests were performed, 3 vehicles were impounded, and 12 drivers were reported for violations.
A number of drivers have been stopped for exceeding the speed limit in Timberlog Lane, four of whom are now facing a speed awareness course or a £100 fine and three penalty points.
The worst offenders were driving at 40 mph and 43 mph, exceeding the 30 mph limit.
A Ford driver was reported to have left his vehicle in an unsafe condition.
