There's a lot less traffic on the road since the novel coronavirus pandemic.


But the result is that more people are driving fast. How fast? Think triple digits.


Michigan State Police is cracking down. The agency handed out a slew of citations over the weekend to motorists driving faster than 100 mph in northern Oakland County, and dozens more across metro Detroit throughout the month of April.


Last week, a driver on I-75 in Monroe County was pulled over and cited for doing 180 mph.


Michigan State Police said complaints about speeding are the most common during the pandemic, second only to violations of physical distancing.


"We realize with the stay-at-home order that there is less traffic out on the roads. However, the same speed limits still apply," MSP Metro Detroit said on Twitter. "A crash at these speeds is usually deadly. We want you to be safe as we deal with this virus. We also want you to be safe on Michigan’s roadways."


According to the agency, among the citations issued over the weekend was a driver doing 83 mph in a construction zone.


Along M-59, MSP also cited drivers for reaching 104 mph on a 70 mph zone, and along the I-696 and I-96 corridor speeds of 111 mph were also recorded.


Despite the high speeds, the agency said crashes are down due to the stay-at-home order.
