Traffic enforcement on Route 95

Forty-six drivers were clocked going over 90 mph by state police during a five-hour span on Sunday. 

State police say they clocked three drivers going more than 115 mph — among 46 traveling at speeds in excess of 90 mph — in the span of a few hours early Sunday in the Seacoast region.

State police, using troopers in cruisers and members of the State Police Aviation Unit, stopped 121 motor vehicles between 6 and 11 a.m. Sunday along Route 95 in Hampton Falls.

The enforcement effort was held to target speed violations and other aggressive driving behavior, state police said in a release.

Troopers stopped 46 drivers going over 90 mph. An additional 10 were stopped for going over 100 mph, including three who topped 115.

The speed limit through that area is 65 mph, state police said.

Drivers clocked at over 100 mph were charged with reckless operation that can result in license suspension, state police Capt. Christopher Vetter said in a statement.

In addition to speed and reckless driving, several drivers faced charges of driving with expired registration and not having valid licenses, according to Vetter.
