The Iowa State Patrol says Iowans are driving way to fast.

Troopers pulled over 2,717 drivers for speeding at more than 25 mph over the speed limit in 2017.

Even more startling, 797 more drivers were stopped for driving more than 100 mph.

"It's alarming it's very scary to see cars are going out there that fast," says Sargeant Nathan Ludwig, "90, 95% of the time if you stop someone for speeding there reason is they are running behind."

The Iowa State Patrol says the fastest driver pulled over last year was going 151 mph.

Troopers are now stepping up patrols to help change people's habits and keep them safe.
