    Camera catches driver speeding while standing through car's sunroof

    A Chandler man suspected of standing through his open sunroof while speeding on Valley freeways has turned himself in.

    Arizona Department of Public Safety officers arrested 25-year-old Richard Anthony Flores on suspicion of reckless driving and criminal speed, DPS reported.

    DPS said Flores was involved in three incidents on Valley freeways.
    During the first incident on Nov. 6, Flores reportedly reached 90 mph in a 65 mph zone on the San Tan portion of the Loop 202 near Lindsey Drive.

    In the other two incidents, Flores was captured on camera driving his Volkswagen Passat while standing through his sunroof. Those incidents occurred minutes apart on Nov. 11 on westbound U.S. 60 near Mesa Drive, then Alma School Road. Flores reached speeds of just under 80 mph, according to DPS.

    Flores' vehicle triggered DPS photo enforcement cameras 14 times in October and November. Investigators have tied Flores to eight of those violations.

    Flores turned himself in Thursday morning after DPS officers encouraged his family Wednesday night to have Flores contact them.

    Bailey said Flores "wasn't surprised when he was contacted."

    He was also served with seven civil speeding citations.

    Interesting, that stuff is an "on view" violation here so an officer would have to witness it. Wonder if they wrote him for seat belt too? The troops do love the seat belt tickets...
