Hey speeders, somebody's looking for you.
The Michigan State Police, Detroit Police and Wayne County Sheriff's departments are conducting a speeding blitz this week on area freeways.
The agencies will run Operation Asphalt Assault through Friday in an effort to get Metro Detroit motorists to slow down out there.
"The aim of the campaign is not to raise revenues by writing tickets, but to get people to slow down and thus save lives," said 1st Lt. Rod Williams, commander of the State Police's Detroit Post.
" Drivers should know that there will be zero tolerance for speeding."
The blitz will take place during the day. Here's where and when police will be dispatched:
# Today: Interstate 94 between Oakwood Boulevard and Eight Mile.
# Friday: The Southfield Freeway between Eight Mile and Michigan Avenue.
Earlier in the week the blitz was held on I-75, I-96 as well as the Davison and Lodge freeways.
"There won't be an 'eye in the sky' looking for speeders, but we will have troopers equipped with laser detectors on freeway overpasses," Williams said.
"Once they spot a speeder, the information will be radioed to officers down on the freeway."
