DETROIT – Michigan State Police said they clocked a teen driving 138 miles per hour on I-75 northbound last Friday, Nov. 23, at 8:45 p.m. The speed limit in the area is 70 mph.
The driver tried to duck off on East Holly Road but the trooper caught up with him. The 17-year-old told police that he was driving so fast and passing other cars because he was late for his 9:30 p.m. curfew.
The trooper didn't give the teen a reckless driving charge, but they did give him a ticket for "138/70 and the SMH (shake my head) award."
