During a scheduled speed enforcement event this week the West Hartford Police Department Traffic Division said in a Facebook post that they arrested the operator of a Honda Accord who was traveling at a very high rate of speed on Albany Avenue near the top of Avon Mountain.

According to police, the driver, whose name was not provided, was pulled over by Ofc. Jeremy Allen after a speed detection laser unit clocked him at 95 MPH during a routine enforcement event. Allen was able to safely stop the driver, who was charged with reckless driving.

The car was towed from the scene, police said.

“The Traffic Division routinely conducts speed enforcement details in various areas of town. We are fortunate in this situation there were no injuries. May this serve as a reminder, especially as the start of school approaches, to slow down and obey the speed limits,” police said.
