DELTA TWP. − A driver was stopped after a Michigan State Police trooper clocked him at 114 mph on Interstate 496 near Creyts Road on Thursday morning, officials said.
The speed limit on I-496 is 70 mph. Road conditions were not ideal following several inches of snow falling Wednesday and Wednesday night, state police Lt. Rene Gonzalez said.

"With the way the weather is, that's not smart at all," he said.
Troopers were "out in force stopping unsafe drivers" on Thursday morning, officials said in Twitter post.
"High speeds like this not only are unsafe for the driver but other motorists, as well," the release said.
A ticket for driving 30 mph or more over the speed limit adds four points to a driver's record, Gonzalez said.
A photo released by state police appears to show the man was driving a mini-van.
