    SHAFTSBURY - Slick roads didn’t prevent a New Yorker from driving more than 100 mph Saturday afternoon, police said.

    Jay Philippi, 32, of Cold Spring, N.Y., is facing a charge of negligent operation after state police allegedly stopped him for driving 101 mph on Route 7.

    “Road conditions were slippery at the time, with a layer of slush and snow covering the roadway,” said State Trooper Justin Walker in a statement.

    The posted speed limit is 55 mph.

    Philippi is scheduled to answer the charge March 24 in Bennington criminal court.
