Caught my fastest vehicle on my trucks radar today, a Prime Inc truck doing 141.. jk

It was a really nice Mustang passed me at 141 MPH in a 55. my previous high was 112 I believe.

If you have a radar what is the fastest speed you have seen?

I recently discovered that feature on my truck when I started this new company. 119 mph is the fastest I've seen in 4-wheelers. 87 by a long nose semi.

Every single time I used to drive through the Denver metro area while on the Walmart account, I would have several blow by going over 100 mph. Anytime of day/night, and every day of the week.

I've had a few pass me at well over 150 mph while running from the police.

I don’t have the radar, or if I have it I don’t know how to use it. But I’m sure the fastest thing I’ve encountered on the highway would have to be a motorcycle. More specifically, a crotch rocket. When they go by, they startle the heck out of me because I don’t usually see them coming up behind me.

And once when I was in Arizona, I got passed by the Roadrunner and then Wiley Coyote. I was driving for Acme Trucking at the time.

Saw a Camaro pass me at 136 back in mid-July. Saw the same Camaro on the side of the road with a Smokey sitting behind about 30 miles later.

I feel bad for my car if I push 80mph

I don’t have that function on my truck but I am a member of the 200mph club on and off the track in a vehicle and on a motorcycle. Before someone gets angry, in both situations there was a certain amount of traffic control involved and it was done on stretches of road where no other traffic was encountered.
