CLAWSON, Mich. (WXYZ) — The massive I-75 reconstruction project in Oakland County is causing major headaches for drivers getting around metro Detroit, but Clawson police are working to crack down on people going too fast to get around the construction.

On Facebook, the department said they are targeting people who speed in neighborhoods to get around the detours and the construction as traffic has increased. The speed limit is 25 mph.

"Traffic has increased in town due to the I-75 construction and we understand how frustrating it can be with the longer delays. What we can't relate to is using that as an excuse as to why you are speeding on the residential streets. Some of you are driving like you have Flux Capacitors on your vehicles. The speed limit on all residential streets is 25 MPH and we are strictly enforcing it," the Facebook post said.
