States reporting motor vehicle speeds exceeding 100 mph on roadways emptied by the stay-at-home orders include Minnesota, Georgia, Colorado, Massachusetts, Utah, Michigan, and Iowa.
“In California, drivers have been cited for going 150 mph through the heart of Oakland and San Francisco, which normally have some of the most congested freeways in the nation,” said officer John Fransen, a spokesman for the California Highway Patrol’s Golden Gate Division.
“Faster speeds reduce reaction time, increase stopping distance and lead to more damage in a crash. In addition to high speeds, many of those caught also are weaving across lanes to overtake slower traffic, increasing the risk of a collision, “ said Minnesota State Patrol Lt. Craig Isaacson.
