Speed demon caught at 128 mph on Colorado Highway.

If you’ve ever had someone pass you on a Colorado highway at a high rate of speed and you thought to yourself, “they have to be going over 100,” you were probably right.

The Park County Sheriff’s Office is reprimanding a driver for speeding at almost 130 mph!

The driver was stopped on Friday for going a staggering 128 mph, as recorded by the deputy’s radar.

Although the sheriff’s office did not disclose the location of the incident, the driver was exceeding the maximum speed limit allowed in Colorado (75 mph) by almost double.

In the Denver metro area, the Aurora Police Department said an officer clocked three separate drivers going more than 100 mph on Interstate 225 on Independence Day.

The department shared photos of the speeding drivers clocked going 101 mph, 102 mph and 103 mph.

“As a result, all three drivers now have mandatory court appearances to speak with a judge about their reckless speeds,” Aurora Police Department said. “Driving this fast is not only illegal and dangerous but potentially deadly. Don’t risk anyone else’s life, or your own, by driving this fast.”

Speeding 25 or more mph over the reasonable and prudent speed, or over the maximum lawful speed of 75 mph is a Class 2 misdemeanor traffic offence.

Colorado law states: “Persons convicted of a Class 2 misdemeanor traffic offense are subject to a minimum sentence of 10 days in jail or a $150 fine, or both, and a maximum sentence of 90 days in jail or a $300 fine, or both.”

In addition, “20 to 39 mph over the reasonable and prudent speed, or over the maximum lawful speed of 75 mph gives you 6 points on your driving record and 40 or more mph over the reasonable and prudent speed, or over the maximum lawful speed of 75 mph adds 12 points,” which is an automatic suspension.

Then, buckle up when your insurance company finds out.


“By choosing to speed, you are not only risking your own life but also jeopardizing the safety of others,” warned the Park County Sheriff’s Office.
