State Police made 121 motor vehicle stops in five hours.

The New Hampshire State Police Special Enforcement Unit and Aviation Unit worked together between 6 a.m. and 11 a.m. as 56 motorists were stopped for speed violations in excess of 90 miles per hour.

Ten motorists were issued a summons for reckless operations after being clocked at traveling over 100 miles per hour, including three in excess of 115 miles per hour.
