Dozens of drivers have been busted for speeding during a two-day Washington State Patrol emphasis patrol on I-90, said Trooper Darren Wright.
Wright said of the 46 cars and motorcycles pulled over, 11 of them were doing over 90 mph, and four were clocked doing over 100! The speed limit along that stretch is 70 mph.
One car was nabbed going as fast as 117 mph, while another clocked at 111 mph was driven by someone not wearing a seat belt, Wright said.
Wright added troopers even caught a car going 104 mph with two unrestrained children in the backseat.
"We think that's very, very dangerous," Wright said.
He said they get a variety of reasons from drivers to go that fast.
"Some people say they don't realize they're going that fast, but we're not sure about that," Wright said.
And for those still yet to hit the roads, Wright warns they'll be out there through the weekend.
"We're hoping to get more people slowed down and prevent some collisions," Wright said. "Slow down, don't drink and drive, and please buckle your seat belt."
