EAGLE MOUNTAIN, Utah, Sept. 21, 2022 (Gephardt Daily) — The Utah County Sheriff’s Office is asking speeders to slow down and save lives, including their own.

The message follows a traffic stop for a man allegedly driving 115 MPH in a 55 MPH zone.

“A 43-year-old man was stopped for going 60 (yes SIXTY) MPH over the speed limit on SR-73 in Eagle Mountain at 4:38 AM this morning,” says a tweet issued Tuesday by the Utah County Sheriff’s Office.

“If you crash at that speed you will die. Plain and simple! Don’t become a deadly statistic!”
