Nineteen-year-old Hector Fraire first started speeding on the Kilpatrick Turnpike—85 mph in a 70...zone. Upon a state trooper taking notice and following, Hector Fraire accelerated his Mustang to 176 mph and then to 208 mph.

The trooper caught up to Fraire, who was also discovered to be in a racing club, when the high-speed situation continued onto Oklahoma’s Northwest Expressway. Fraire approached a red light, turned south then killed the engine and dropped the keys out the driver-side window.

He was arrested, booked into the Canadian County jail but posted bail less than 72 hours later.

In light of that and other disregards for the road, Oklahoma’s implementing what they hope will be a nationwide trend in helping youngsters understand the importance of driver safety and responsibility.
