LIMESTONE Coast highway patrol has nabbed 52 motorists for speeding during a state-wide road safety operation focusing on drivers "creeping" over the speed limit on the weekend.

In the operation that ran from July 7 to 9, all motorists were issued with a caution or fined depending on the speed they were travelling.

Mount Gambier Police Sergeant Andy Stott said there were three drivers caught doing excessive speed of more than 20kph over the limit.

"We had two people doing over 130kph in a 110kph zone on the Princes Highway and another individual was caught doing 91kph in a 60kph zone in the city," Sgt Stott said.
