Driver stopped going 102 mph on Interstate 380

Ticket could exceed $250, police say

Hiawatha police gave an expensive reminder to a motorist Tuesday morning on Interstate 380 after the driver was caught traveling 102 mph.

The car was southbound on the interstate and did not immediately pull over. Cedar Rapids police were notified, but the car soon stopped underneath the Emmons Street overpass. Police said the driver did not see the police car due to heavy traffic.

Police said the driver, whose name was not released, apparently was late for something. The driver was released with a ticket. Police said the ticket may run more than $250.
