Orange County Sheriff’s Bodycam Video of 100+ MPH Teenage Driver

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – The Orange County Sheriff’s Office has released body camera footage of a traffic stop involving a teenage driver who was accused of driving at more than twice the speed limit on Interstate 4.

The video, which was obtained by FOX 35 News in January, shows the 16-year-old driver being pulled over in the express lanes of I-4. The sheriff’s deputy who conducted the stop stated that the driver was clocked at over 100 miles per hour. The deputy can be heard saying, “132 miles an hour.”

Curious about the young driver’s age, the deputy inquires, “How old are you?” When he learns that the driver is just 16, he demands to know whose car it is and instructs the teen to call his father, insisting that the car, a Toyota Supra, is “too much car” for someone of that age.

Although the teenager was not arrested, he was issued a speeding citation, which requires him to appear in court. The deputy explained to the teen’s parents that he did not charge him with reckless criminal behavior, but he emphasized that if the driver had been 18 years old, he would have been taken into custody.

As the new school year approaches, the Florida Highway Patrol is prepared for more encounters with young drivers. Trooper Migdalisis Garcia from FHP emphasized their focus on educating young drivers during traffic stops.

The goal is to make these stops impactful enough to encourage safe driving habits, prevent tragic accidents, and help young drivers learn vital lessons without having to experience a devastating crash.
