The Wisconsin State Patrol is looking for speeders, aggressive or reckless drivers, and vehicles breaking other laws today (Wednesday).

The Patrol is watching a stretch of Interstate 39-90 in Dane County from the air and the ground. When troopers in State Patrol aircraft detect speeders or others increasing the danger, they contact ground-based units to conduct a traffic stop. When a similar exercise was held last month there were 28 traffic stops done, including one driver going 91 miles-an-hour in a 60 mile-and-hour zone.
