Two motorway drivers forgot about the basic principle of driving to the speed limit this morning
The drivers were caught by police at around midday today (April 22), one in the Preston area and the other near Stubbins.
Lancashire Road Police said that the car near Stubbins in fact overtook the police car.
Both were reported for excessive speed.
One member of the public, Twitter user @PeteFyans, congratulated the police on the stoppages, saying: "Excellent work guys."
