Not me

MY car has a governor that cuts it off at 115. Or so I’m told…

A Goodyear man was arrested by police after photo enforcement cameras on the Loop 101 freeway in Scottsdale clocked him driving his vehicle at up to 147 mph.

Lawrence Pargo, 26, was taken into custody by police at his home May 26 on suspicion of four counts of excessive speeding, reckless driving and endangerment, said Scottsdale police Lt. Frank O’Halloran.

Pargo was clocked and photographed traveling at speeds ranging from 102 mph to 147 mph on four occasions in the early-morning hours of May 21.

“He endangered the lives of others as well as himself,” O’Halloran said. “The car was beyond its capabilities, and he was beyond his capabilities of controlling it. The tires aren’t rated for 147 mph. They’re stock tires on a rental car. The car probably was shaking.”
