West Hartford Police said in a Facebook post on Monday that over the weekend they arrested an 18-year-old who was driving nearly three times faster than the posted speed limit on Albany Avenue.
During routine traffic enforcement on Albany Avenue, police clocked a Chevrolet Camaro traveling eastbound near Mountain Road at 110mph. The speed limit in the area is 40mph.
Video of the vehicle was captured by a dashcam on the cruiser.
The driver, identified as Colin Coyle, 18, of the Unionville section of Farmington, was arrested and charged with reckless driving and speeding, police said in their post.
Police said Coyle’s vehicle was towed, and he will appear in Hartford Superior Court later this month.
“The Traffic Division routinely conducts speed enforcement throughout town. Traveling at extreme speeds like this endangers everyone on the roadways. Please be considerate as to not jeopardize other motorists, pedestrians, or cyclists,” police said.
