North Yorkshire Police have recorded speeds of up to 48mph in a 30mph limit zone last night.
Speed enforcement took place in a community on the A170 near a local school and play area.
A spokesperson from North Yorkshire Police Traffic Bureau said: "Alarmingly 44 speeding offences were recorded with speeds of up to 48mph in the 30mph limit.
"Think! If your child was hit by a vehicle travelling at those speeds, the chances of them surviving are virtually zero.
"The limit is 30 for a reason. We are here to enforce that limit and make the communities a safer place to live. Please #SlowDown and #StaySafe."
