Pirate FM can reveal Cornwall's speeding hotspots.

The A30 camera at Roseworthy Dip near Camborne has snapped the most drivers since 2011.

Almost sixteen hundred have gone through it too fast.

Emma from Hayle ended up on a speed awareness course when she was caught. She reckons it is not worth the risk: "We had to take on the roles of how we would feel if we were the mother of the person who had been speeding or the girlfriend of the person who had died. It was a real eye opener. At the end of the day you could never live with yourself if you had killed somebody.

"There were all different walks of life there. We're all guilty of it - it isn't just young boys in fast cars.

"Going on the course and seeing those graphic details has made me really think - and it's just not worth it."

Natalie Hatswell from Peninsula Road Safety Partnership has told Pirate FM fewer people seem to be speeding: "We would love to have have zero figures coming back but looking at the top one, Roseworthy Dip on the A30 - that equates to just over two a day. That's not an awful lot when you look at it in that context."
