LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) -

Police in West Hempfield Township, Lancaster County said they cited 21 drivers for speeding as part of a statewide crackdown on aggressive driving along Route 30.

Police said they clocked one driver at 92 mph in the 55 mph zone near Prospect Road during the enforcement detail Monday, and the lowest speed to get a driver a ticket was 73 mph.

The average speed of the 21 drivers cited was 79 mph, police said.

Three additional citations were issued for an inspection violation, driving under suspension and driving with an expired license, police said.

Pennsylvania State Police and PennDOT said Route 30 has seen nearly 9,800 crashes and 96 fatalities since 2008.
