HARTFORD — In a continued effort to reduce highway fatalities and crashes, Connecticut State Police troopers are intensifying their patrols to target reckless and aggressive drivers on state roadways.

The initiative comes as a response to a series of recent incidents involving extreme speeding.

Authorities are urging the public to adhere to posted speed limits and to report unsafe driving behavior by calling 9-1-1.

One driver was apprehended after being clocked at 102 mph in a 65 mph zone on I-84 in Vernon, officials said.

Another was caught traveling at 108 mph on the same interstate in Willington.

A third driver, pushing the limits even further, was observed speeding at 115 mph on I-84 eastbound, also in Willington.

Each of the drivers has been issued a misdemeanor summons for reckless driving, in violation of C.G.S. 14-222.

The accused drivers are scheduled to appear in Rockville Superior Court on May 21 to face their charges.

State police are highlighting these incidents as a stark reminder of the dangers of excessive speeding and are asking the community to play a role in keeping the roads safe for everyone.
