BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Vermont State Police say they have caught at least six drivers in three weeks for speeding in excess of 100 mph along the state’s highways.

Lt. Garry Scott, head of the Traffic Safety Division, tells the Burlington Free Press (http://bfpne.ws/1MZav0V ) that he is concerned about the problem of reckless driving in Vermont.

Scott says four of the cases involved relatively new or inexperienced drivers and that the deadliest age group for motorists is 25 years old and younger.

Vermont Transportation Agency officials say the state has had 33 highway deaths in 2015, 10 of which occurred in July.

State Trooper Rich Slusser, who has made three of the six arrests, says most of the drivers had no excuse for speeding.

Police say four of the cases occurred during commuting hours.
