MOUNT PLEASANT- Fast and furious. TODAY'S TMJ4 rode along with police after they clocked someone driving over 100 miles an hour along Green Bay Avenue in Mount Pleasant a few years ago.
TODAY'S TMJ4's "Speedbusters" reports the speed limit on that road there is 35 miles an hour, yet they found drivers going at least fifteen over.
Mount Pleasant Police Officer Jay Vaccaro caught one guy going 50 miles an hour, another driver 51 miles an hour.
Officer Vaccaro says, "I'm going to have issue a citation for 15 over okay. It's a housing area. It doesn't turn to 55 until way down ahead of you."
That's why neighbor Steve Krebs was thrilled to the see "Speedbusters" here, along with police.
"They could be pulling people over a 100 a day. I see motorcycles flying in here 65 miles per hour," Krebs told TODAY'S TMJ4.
TODAY'S TMJ4's Jay Olstad reports that a couple years ago when TODAY'S TMJ4 caught a motorcyclist going 68 miles over the limit. Which meant that someone was going 103 miles an hour!
TODAY'S TMJ4 had to slow down that video just to make the guy out.
Fast forward back to Monday where TODAY'S TMJ4 didn't see those type of speeds, in part neighbors believe because of "Speedbusters" reports.
Officer Vaccaro says the goal is compliance and he hopes the message spreads as fast as these drivers.
"Please slow down, be careful and have a better day," Officer Vaccaro urges drivers.
