MILWAUKEE — If you're driving on Interstate 94 on Tuesday, make sure you're following the law.

State Patrol will have much more law enforcement in southeast Wisconsin for "Blue Day," according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

"Blue Day" is a day created to raise safe, law-abiding driving along roadways.

"Tuesday’s Blue Day initiative supports the State Patrol’s overall public safety mission to prevent traffic crashes and save lives,” said Capt. Cedric Rembert, commander of the State Patrol’s Southeast Region Waukesha Post. “We publicly-announce many of these enforcement efforts because our goal is for motorists to voluntarily comply with traffic laws at all times.”

Along with many more patrol cars on the highway, a State Patrol aircraft will fly over the highway to watch for aggressive, speeding drivers.
