West Midlands Police launched an operation last year, hiding cameras in road signals on the A47 to catch drivers breaking the speed limit.
After numerous complaints about driving offences committed at night, the police set out to catch individuals and found drivers reaching speeds of up to 120mph.
More than 250 drivers were approached by police, with footage helping secure driving bans and fines of up to £2000.
Pc Paul Bieliauskas said: “Their driving was outrageous and illegal – they posed a real danger to the public due to the manner of the driving and the speeds they reach and it was down to pure good luck that is didn’t result in any fatal collisions.”
