The new system would disable a vehicle if the driver was impaired by drugs or alcohol. Veuer’s Tony Spitz has the details.

LEXINGTON — A drunken driver was traveling 152 mph when he was pulled over in Rockbridge County over the weekend, Virginia State Police said.

The 29-year-old man was stopped on Interstate 81 on Sunday and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, according to a tweet Tuesday from state police.

The tweet shows a photo of the officer’s ticket, which said the man was driving 152 mph in a 70 mph zone.

“Speeding & DUI = Too many lives at risk = Arrest,” the tweet said.

The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles lists reckless driving as 20 mph over the speed limit, or going more than 85 mph in any situation.
