This operation led to the discovery of 100 traffic violations, with 52 drivers caught traveling at speeds of 90 mph or greater.

Furthermore, eight individuals were observed driving recklessly at speeds exceeding 100 mph.

The enforcement initiative also led to the identification of various other infractions, such as child restraint violations, tailgating, and driving with a suspended license.

In a related incident on the morning of May 26, Maine State Police attempted to pull over a vehicle for speeding in excess of 90 mph on I-95.
