July 2, 2007--The Iowa State Patrol is getting a new tool to catch speedy drivers. A new Cessna Skylane 182 was unveiled today. The plane is part of the state patrol's air wing.
Troopers will use it over the Fourth of July holiday to crack down on people speeding, illegal passing, and stop sign violations.
The state patrol says Independence Day is one of the deadliest holidays and just because you don't see a trooper's car doesn't mean they aren't watching you
