Average speed cameras on the A14 by the Orwell Bridge

A motorist has denied eight speeding allegations, including five on the Orwell Bridge - three of which occurred in just over two hours.

A fourth excess speed allegation is said to have taken place less than 25 minutes afterwards.

In total Mohammed Zaman is said to have been caught speeding eight times in five days.

All the charges related to average speed camera locations on the A12 between East Bergholt and Stratford St Mary in the 70mph limit, or the A14 over the Orwell Bridge in the 60mph limit.

Zaman could potentially face having his licence endorsed with 72 points and being disqualified from driving if the speeding charges are proven, along with a further eight allegations of failing to provide information as to who was driving.
