"With traffic congestion eased by the sheltering orders, the California Highway Patrol has reported an 87% increase of speeders in excess of 100 mph around the state.

From March 19, when the state’s stay-at-home orders began, to April 19, the CHP issued 2,493 citations statewide for speeding more than 100 mph, compared to 1,335 citations for the same time period last year.

In Marin County, the CHP ticketed 274 speeders from April 1-24, and 14 were driving at 100 mph or faster, Officer Andrew Barclay said. For the same period last year, the CHP wrote 807 speeding tickets in Marin, with only five motorists driving faster than 100 mph."
