BOW — State Troopers detained a motorcyclist clocked at a staggering 141 mph during a traffic enforcement operation on Interstate 93, where a total of 30 vehicles were stopped for excessive speeding.

The enforcement effort, led by the New Hampshire State Police Special Enforcement Unit, took place earlier today, June 16.

Utilizing an aircraft, Troopers were able to identify and stop speeding violators traveling southbound on I-93 in Bow.

Out of the 30 vehicles pulled over, 28 were driving over 90 mph, and nine of these surpassed 100 mph.

Additional offenses, including driving after suspension and failing to meet vehicle inspection standards, were also addressed.

Sgt. Jay LaPointe, operating the aircraft, spotted a motorcycle weaving through traffic at speeds ranging from 124 to 141 mph shortly before 8:30 a.m. He coordinated with Trooper Scott Garton on the ground to apprehend the motorcyclist, later identified as 21-year-old Aaron LaFlower of Belmont.

LaFlower was charged with reckless operation, processed, and subsequently released on personal recognizance bail.

He is expected to appear in Concord District Court on July 26.

The Special Enforcement Unit is committed to enhancing highway safety and reducing accidents through the enforcement of traffic laws.

Equipped with a Cessna 182 aircraft and other advanced technologies, the unit is well-prepared to undertake such high-speed enforcement operations.
