    Anyone traveling 140 mph on a public highway is an imminent danger to other drivers.
    The police chief should have arrested the driver and impounded the car.

    Wow at that speed, it should have been considered reckless driving. Who in their right mind needs to drive 140 mph?

    How did Chief Acevedo catch the guy if his car tops out at 120 and the guy was doing 140? Just asking the obvious question.

  • EC Patriot

    How about reckless endangerment? How about felonious operation of a motor vehicle? How about lifetime suspension of driving privileges?

    A ticket? Why bother?

    Guys 140 is nothing for a viper. Heck Eagle Talons used to rip up to that on daily commutes. Beautiful little cars. I feel sorry for today's generation. Miss the 90s.

    An arrest should have been made here. His sole responsibilty as a cop is public safety. 140mph in a 55mph zone could have ended with someone dead.

    I'm a big fan of Chief Acevedo but this deserves much more than a slap on the wrist. Houston has some of the most horrific car accidents and this could have been one of them.

  • Sal Monela

    This is not amusing in any way. The officer should have arrested this clown and impounded his car. The courts then need to send the driver a clear message that this kind of act is not acceptable. A hefty fine and license suspension is what is needed.

    My best is an Aston Martin doing 134 in a 75. I was on my Honda ST1300. If he hadn't slowed down to exit the highway, I wouldn't have caught him.

    I recall getting a ticket for driving 96 in OK years ago and the ticket was for $125. I guess Texas has higher fines than most states.

  • BluntNotPC

    The driver of the Viper was yelling "... how do you get this thing out of second gear..." --- little nash rambler.

    Seems he got off easy. Wonder why?
    Guess he can expect his insurance rates to go up.

    A ticket? I was under the impression anything that grossly over the speed limit was criminal reckless driving.
