Stonington A Quaker Hill man was charged with reckless driving Saturday after police say he drove 139 miles per hour on Interstate 95.
Stewart V. Williams, 25, of [Adress redacted by Moi --TSR], Quaker Hill, was charged with reckless driving, greater than 85 mph.
According to State Police, Williams was traveling northbound near exit 92 when a trooper used a laser clock to read the speed of his 2012 Audi R8 at 139 miles per hour in a 65-miles-per-hour zone. Williams was stopped and taken into custody. He was released on a $500 non-surety bond and is scheduled to appear at GA 10 in New London on May 17.
139mph in a R8? Amateur.
“Son, you’re going to drive me to drinkin’ if you don’t stop drivin’ that hot rod Lincoln.”
and a little Nash Rambler was following him about one fourth of his size.
He’s got me; best I ever did was 115 in my 1972 Mustang Mach I on I 465 in the wee hours of the morning. It had more to give but the Ford steering was so bad, I was starting to drift between lanes. That was enough for me.
It’s an old insurance axiom that male drivers 25 or under have no sense.
If he can afford the car, he can afford the tickets. Maybe he was only in 3rd gear?
If it is a manual transmission he had to have at least one gear left.
I got up to 140 in my Z-28 and it felt like I was gonna go air born any second, so I backed off.
I did 140 in a GTX.
His Daddy won’t be pleased when the insurance rates go sky high. If you are 25 and have an R8, it was probably given to you.
147 in a stock GT.
Speed costs money. How fast do you want to go?
Back in Jan 1985 I pegged the 155 MPH digital speedo on my new Vette. I was on a very straight two-lane highway out west during a very bright full moon.
The faster I went the better that car hunkered down and drove.
henkster you must have needed a tune-up, I was able to get to 131 in my 1972 Mach1 :)
I did 157mph in an Audi A3 in Germany. We got passed by a big Mercedes sedan that must have been doing 200.
152 Subaru WRX (tuned)
