MADISON (WKOW) -- If you drive on the Beltline, you may want to watch your speed Thursday.
The Wisconsin State Patrol will be using aerial patrols to catch violators. If a pilot finds someone speeding, they'll let a ground officer know and that officer will pull over the speeder.
The plan for aerial enforcement is contingent on the weather. The Beltline is mainly clear of snow as of Thursday morning.
"Aircraft serve as a valuable tool to help us identify speeders, aggressive or reckless drivers who compromise the safety of all travelers," said Captain Jason Zeeh, Commander of the State Patrol's DeForest Post. "Our goal is public safety and voluntary compliance with traffic laws, but motorists who make irresponsible decisions should expect to be stopped by law enforcement and potentially cited."
