VERMILLION COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Eyes in the sky: Indiana State Police use a special tool to crack down on reckless driving by air.

High above State Road 63 in Vermillion County with the help of a Cessna Skyhawk airplane, State Police are clocking cars from the sky.

The pilot detects speeding vehicles by VASCAR, or visual average speed computer and recorder and a set of pre-determined painted lines on the roadways edge.

The pilot then radios down to officers on the ground.

ISP says they will continue to use every tool available to decrease dangerous and aggressive driving.
