Ontario Provincial Police is now using a Cessna 206 aircraft to observe drivers. The aerial enforcement begins by targeting the stretch of busy highways. A spotter and a pilot are aboard the aircraft, which will allow police to relay information to interceptor cruisers on the ground. White marker points have been painted every 500 meters along selected stretches of Highways, which will allow police to measure the speeds of moving vehicles. The aircraft has been equipped with infrared technology and a high-tech video camera to allow police to operate the plane day and night. The aircrafts can observe hundreds of cars at one time.The aircrafts relays the information to the ground units, who then pull the vehicle over and issue an offence notice. An officer in a helicopter or plane is in a position to observed from the time to the offence until the traffic stop, without losing the sight of the vehicle. The O.P.P has also been catching drivers who have been racing, stunt driving, driving carelessly, too even changing lanes unsafely. Motorists caught travelling more than 50 km/h above the posted speed limit have had their vehicles impounded on the spot and licenses suspended for a week. The drivers also face fines of between $2,000 and $10,000 if found guilty. The O.P.P team rotates to a different location each time out. They know where some of the worst offenders put the pedal down, therefore drivers beware. If you get a ticket from the sky they you can call the Law Society Referral Service.
