The California Highway Patrol has, on the past two weekends, conducted sting operations in which airplane pilots have coordinated with ground units to catch speeders.
The CHP stated in a news release that on Sunday the agency stopped 16 motorists between Lee Vining and June Lake, and issued speeding tickets to 13 of them.
On Sept. 15, the CHP stopped 19 drivers and issued 12 tickets near Tom's Place south of Mammoth Lakes.
Drivers who were not issued tickets, according to the Mammoth Times, were traveling less than 20 mph over the speed limit. Most of those who were ticketed were diving much faster.
Said Lt. Ron Cohan, a CHP commander based in Bridgeport, in a statement:
"In our daily lives we tend to forget the dangers of speeding…. The CHP will continue to use all the tools at its disposal to reduce speeding."
