ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY, MD - A driver was caught speeding at 110 mph on Tuesday, the Anne Arundel County Police Department said.

Officers said they stopped 28 drivers during a 2.5-hour traffic enforcement operation on Maryland Route 10. 

That highway runs north and south from Interstate 695 in Glen Burnie to Maryland Route 100 in Pasadena. The speed limit is 55 mph.

A police helicopter tracked speeders in the air and relayed the information to officers on the ground. 

A press release said the helicopter clocked several speeders over 85 mph, including multiple triple-digit readings.

The detail took place during the morning rush hours.

Officers said they "issued citations for egregious speed violations."

Authorities said the operation was a result of crashes, aggressive driving and speed complaints.

Police said they will conduct additional traffic enforcement operations in the future to curb aggressive driving, speeding and distracted driving.

Officers asked motorists to report reckless driving by calling 911 or the non-emergency line of (410) 222-8610.
