Andy Foote doesn't miss much at 2,800 feet in the air, especially a small, gold-colored car weaving and speeding past northbound traffic on Interstate 75 in Broward County.

The Florida Highway Patrol sergeant clicks his stopwatch, keeps a steady eye on the car for a few seconds, then clicks it again. It reads 105. Moments later, a trooper on the ground is citing the car's driver for aggressive driving.

"Ninety-nine percent of drivers don't look up when they're driving," said Foote, an FHP pilot for five years. "We're also not working radar, so radar detectors don't go off."
