This motorist thought his time was more important than you’re safety. Luckily our Motors Troopers spotted him and educated him on the dangers of speeding on our freeways. This was at 215SB at Russell. Slow down folks, our last 4 fatal crashes were all speed related. #nhpsocomm pic.twitter.com/MLZMme3aGi
