Everyone knows that cops are going to be out and about waiting to pull over irresponsible, reckless drivers, especially on a holiday weekend like Labor Day Weekend.

And, sure enough, they were.

On Sunday morning (Sept. 4), officials with Colorado's Wheat Ridge Police Department took to Twitter (@WheatRidgePD) to share this pretty alarming photo -

An unidentified driver headed eastbound on I-70 near Wadsworth Boulevard was clocked going over 130 MPH - 133 MPH, to be exact - by police.

"Frankly, it's terrifying.", the police department's tweet reads.

"We’ve got extra patrols on for the #holidayweekend traffic. Please… slow down. Value your life more than this." 

Driver Clocked Going 133 MPH On I-70 Gets Off Clean

According to KDVR, police were unsuccessful in pulling the speeding vehicle over on Sunday (Sept. 4), due to the fact that the driver was traveling at such a high rate of speed and refused to stop.

In addition, Wheat Ridge Police Department said that the vehicle did not appear to have a license plate, but they believe that the vehicle in question was either a Dodge Charger or a Dodge Challenger.

The speeding driver in this case is still at large, KDVR reported Sunday afternoon.
