If you like to speed and weave from lane to lane on the daily drive on Interstate 95, take note.
The Florida Highway Patrol will be out in force Wednesday and Thursday looking for you.
Operation Safe Ride is a two-day crackdown on speeding and aggressive driving, FHP Col. Chris Knight said. Troopers will employ a number of methods to track motorists including radar and unmarked cars.
Seven airplanes will fly over major highways to spot violators and radio the information to troopers on the road who will pull over the drivers.
"Most people today consider unsafe driving by others as a major personal threat to themselves and their families," Knight said.
Operation Safe Ride is part of FHP's overall campaign to reduce deaths and injuries on Florida's roadways.
