CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - The Iowa State Patrol is again urging Iowans to drive safely to prevent a serious accident after catching a driver going over 100 mph in Cedar Rapids.

Officials posted a photo on their Facebook page Friday morning after stopping a motorcycle driver clocked at 117 mph. More surprising, the trooper said the driver only had an instructional permit.

“Thankfully, the trooper was able to get this driver stopped before something serious happened,” the Iowa State Patrol said in a Facebook post.
