The Highway Patrol is scheduled to send another team onto an East Bay freeway Monday to stop and cite speeders.
The CHP "speed team" has so far cited 106 people for speeding on Highway 4 in East County on March 12 and March 19.
The lowest speed cited on March 19 was 85 mph and the highest was 104 mph, according to the CHP. They also have impounded half a dozen vehicles.
Officers could return to Highway 4 or patrol Interstate 680 or Highway 24.
The speed teams are deployed in addition to normal CHP shifts and focus exclusively on speeders.
