MOUNT PLEASANT - It's been four years, and yet the story with the fastest driver in Speedbusters history is still in Mount Pleasant, from 2009.
A motorcycle was going 103 miles per hour, nearly 70 hours over the limit on Green Bay Road.
Tim Zuck originally told us about Green Bay Road, a 35-mile an hour roadway,who lives on the street.
"You're going to get some speeders," he said.
So that's why we came back and once again brought our Speedbusters gun.
"This car right here is 54. It doesn't surprise you though Tim," said reporter Jay Olstad.
"Nope," replied Zuck. "It doesn't surprise me at all."
And neither did many more speeders we caught, including one driver going 57. That's more than twenty miles over the limit.
"We've had to replace nine mailboxes in 20 years," he said.
And it's not just mailboxes, Zuck has replaced because of out of control drivers, one of his driveway lights was demolished too.
"I appreciate what's your trying to do with raising the awareness," he told us.
And although the speeds are still fast, Tim says after our stories aired, he saw more police patrolling the area.
"They are stepping up the efforts," he said of police.
And while the Speedbusters plan to follow up with police in the coming weeks, Zuck wants to follow up with all of us now.
"This looks like an open stretch of road, but this is a neighborhood, just like your neighborhood. You wouldn't want me to speed through your neighborhood. I don't want you to speed through mine," he said.
