Matt Dillon
needs to slow down!

The Oscar-winning “Crash” actor was busted for speeding in Vermont last  night.

Vermont state police say they clocked Dillon, 44, driving 106 mph  in a 65 mph zone on Interstate 91 in Newbury around 10 p.m. Tuesday night.

Dillon was driving a rented 2009 Chevy Impala.

Police arrested Dillon, processed him and released him on a citation for excessive speed.

He is due in Orange District Court on Jan. 21.

Wait, that’s it? Speeding?

We hate to say it, but this could have been so much worse.

It’s so rare for a celebrity to get stopped for speeding and not get arrested for drugs, alcohol, running over a paparazzo’s foot, for going the wrong way on a freeway, for not having a valid driver’s license or for just being Britney Spears.
