This year New York State's Department of Transportation has made a major effort to decrease the number of speeders in work zones.

One of the biggest ways the state tried to deter speeders this year was to install automatic speed cameras in work zones. The cameras would be set up and used to photograph vehicles that passed through the work zones.

Well earlier this month, one of those cameras caught something amazing. A speed camera caught a driver in Monroe County going 139 miles per hour which is well over the speed limit.

Most speed limits in work zones range from 30 miles per hour to 55 miles per hour. This vehicle was doing more than double that when they drove through a work zone.

Needless to say, that driver got sent a ticket and could be looking at reckless driving charges as well after the video is reviewed.
