NEWTON, Kan. (KAKE) - A driver has been ordered to appear in court after a trooper clocked their car going 95 mph over the posted speed limit on a Harvey County highway. 

Trooper Chad Crittenden said on X Monday that Master Trooper Morris stopped the driver on Highway 50. A picture of the ticket shows the citation is for 150 in a 55 mph zone. 

"I would love to say this was an April Fools joke, but it’s not!" Trooper Chad said.

It's unclear how much the fine will be. Rather than a set amount to pay, the driver was instead ordered to appear in court the afternoon of April 29. 

About two months ago, Trooper Tod Hileman said that since 2020, troopers have stopped a record number of people driving at dangerous speeds. In 2022, he said, troopers wrote 1,237 tickets for people driving over 100 mph in Troop D, an 18-county section of north-central and northwest Kansas.
