101 MPH in 65 MPS Zone

On Thursday, June 19, New York State Troopers stopped a vehicle going 101 mph in a 65 mph zone on I-81 in Cicero as she was approaching a work zone.

What's the rush? Was someone dying?

New York State Police said the driver stated she was speeding because she was late for work.

Say what?! No job is more important than a the life of someone working in a construction zone, or anyone else on the road for that matter.

SLOW down when you're coming upon construction!
