RURAL WESTERN IOWA – A motorcyclist on his new bike was busted going 125 mph on rural Iowa highway, but not fast enough to evade capture by diligent law enforcement.

According to the Iowa State Patrol, on Tuesday, June 21 at around 11:50 PM, a state patrolman stopped a motorcycle traveling 125 mph on Highway 20 eastbound at the 147 mile marker. When the trooper asked the driver why he was driving so fast, the lawbreaker replied, “I just bought the bike in Ft. Dodge 20 minutes ago and wanted to have some fun.”

Unamused, the trooper advised “the driver’s idea of ‘fun’ could have killed himself and could have killed others. No excuses.”

In Iowa, if ticketed for over 20 mph over the posted speed limit, the fine is $100.00 plus $5.00 for each mile in excess of 20 mph over speed limit.

In 2020, 63 motorcyclists were killed in traffic accidents in Iowa.
