MILWAUKEE – Drivers, you've been warned! The Wisconsin State Patrol is taking their patrol to the skies.
To enhance safety for all travelers, the Wisconsin State Patrol plans to utilize aircraft and ground-based officers to enforce speed limits and other traffic laws on Tuesday, June 5 along I-43 in Walworth County.
The Wisconsin State Patrol Office says the specially-equipped State Patrol aircraft use highway markings and a timing device known as VASCAR to determine vehicle speeds. When pilots detect speeders, aggressive or reckless drivers, they contact ground-based units to initiate a traffic stop.
