An airplane will be used to catch speeders and enforce other traffic laws on Sunday along U.S. 53 in Barron County.

The State Patrol plane will use a special device and highway markings to gauge speeds of vehicles on the ground and then alert squad cars of lawbreakers.

Locations of aerial enforcement missions are chosen by analyzing traffic citations, crash reports and other data. Most of these aerial campaigns are made possible through federal funds that support local law enforcement, according to a State Patrol news release.
