Special East Washington Avenue traffic enforcement efforts Friday and Saturday nights resulted in four arrests, 64 tickets and 65 warning tickets, with one driver clocked at 126 miles per hour in a 55-mph zone, Madison police said.

The effort with the State Patrol came in response to community complaints about speeding, reckless driving and racing in the East Washington corridor, police spokesman Joel DeSpain said.

Three of the four arrests were three for impaired driving, and one was for drugs, DeSpain said.

In addition, several motorists attempted to elude law enforcement, including one who crashed, DeSpain said.
