Speeding patrols stepped up on Van Deusenville Road

Great Barrington — The Great Barrington Police Department reports that, after receiving many complaints of vehicles, particularly motorcycles, speeding on Van Deusenville Road, it has stepped up radar patrols. On May 14 at 9 p.m., Officer Joseph O’Brien, while running radar on the street, stopped a white Kawasaki motorcycle for doing 57 miles per hour in a 35 mph speed zone. O’Brien pulled the motorcycle over and identified Jordan Stuber, 23, of Housatonic, as the operator. Stuber told the officer he did not have a registration and the plates were from another vehicle. The Connecticut plates came back to a black Suzuki. A check of his license also showed him to be suspended. O’Brien issued Stuber a citation for attaching plates, speeding and operating after suspension of his license. He will appear at a later date in court.
