Safety officials urge drivers to slow down during busy summer travel season

By Riley King

Yesterday there was a news conference held at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, officials said Granite Staters should leave the speeding for the professionals on the racetrack.

Safety officials said that in 2023, 116 people were ticketed for driving 100 to 109 mph in the state, with another 10 people ticketed for going 110-120 mph.

With the start of Motorcycle Week, summer approaching, and travel season as well, the Department of Safety said it will increase the number of troopers on New Hampshire highways in an effort to stop excessive speeding. Officials are pleading with drivers to take it easy.

The state is reminding people that reckless driving is not only unsafe, but it can also have financial repercussions.

This message is not just for drivers, but also for people riding on motorcycles. Officials said everyone on the road really needs to pay attention, especially with Motorcycle Week rolling into town this month.
