BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The roads in Massachusetts are less congested due to statewide stay-at-home orders, and while that means less traffic, it also means higher rates of speeding.
According to Massachusetts State Police, ahead of Memorial Day Weekend, troopers stopped dozens of cars traveling upwards of 90mph, with several drivers being pulled over for topping 100 mph.
"Despite all the coverage of speed enforcement, drivers are still doing the wrong thing," said a tweet from MSP. "Our Troop C Open Road Initiative deployed more extra patrols in central MA this evening. Once again there was no shortage of work for them."
By Friday evening, the extra patrols had caught four drivers going over 100 mph, one of them reaching 110 mph, and 24 drivers were cited for traveling above 90 mph.
