SALEM — A Lawrence, Massachusetts, man was arrested on March 8 for driving 128 mph on Interstate 93 in Salem during a traffic enforcement initiative conducted by the New Hampshire State Police.

Reginald Carter, 48, was charged with reckless driving and is scheduled to appear in the 10th Circuit District Division Salem Court on April 18.

The New Hampshire State Police Special Enforcement Unit and members of the State Police Troop B barracks utilized the State Police Aircraft to monitor traffic on I-93 in response to an increase in speeding and hazardous driving behavior in the area.

During the operation, troopers stopped a total of 56 violations, including 21 for operators traveling over 90 mph and seven for operators traveling in excess of 100 mph, as well as several other motor vehicle violations such as following too closely, use of a mobile device, negligent driving, and move over law violations.

At approximately 8:13 a.m., Trooper Thomas Lombardi observed Carter’s vehicle traveling at a very high rate of speed while passing other traffic.

Lombardi measured the vehicle’s speed at 128 mph and radioed troopers on the ground, who then stopped the vehicle.

The New Hampshire State Police Special Enforcement Unit will continue to conduct similar operations throughout the state to ensure the safety of all citizens on New Hampshire highways.
