The Highway Patrol Is Taking To The Air To Stop Speeders

The Highway Patrol is taking a new angle on catching speeders....from the air.

The Highway Patrol will be using helicopters to enforce speed limits. Wednesday afternoon they will be at I-77 near the Mecklenburg and Iredell County lines and I-40 near the Wake and Johnston County lines.

On Friday afternoon, helicopters will hover over I-95 in Robeson County near the 36 mile marker and I-26 in Henderson County between 42 and 46 mile markers.
