Local police are urging parents to remind their teenagers about the dangers of speeding after a reckless driving incident on Tuesday.

According to the Fairfax County Police Department, on Tuesday an inexperienced driver was caught going 90 mph in a school zone where the speed limit was 25 mph, resulting in a reckless driving charge.

“Parents, take this opportunity to talk to your teens about the dangers of speeding, especially in a school zone. We need to work together to keep our students safe,” FCPD wrote in a statement.

Some residents took to social media to urge the police department to prosecute the individual to the fullest extent of the law.

The teenager was pulled over after a motor squad officer happened to be “in the right place at the right time,” FCPD said.

The police department did not immediately respond to a request for more information.

According to state law, anyone convicted of reckless driving is guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor.
