Indiana State Police are flying high to crack down on unsafe driving below.

ISP is utilizing an airplane to track speed, unsafe lane movement, and other aggressive driving behaviors.

A set area is marked with white lines that the pilot can see from the air.

The pilot then times people going through those marks and follows violators to one of multiple trooper vehicles around the location.

On Wednesday troopers were at State Road 18 and I-65 in White County from noon to 2 p.m.

Master Trooper Aaron McCormick says aggressive driving is especially present this time of year.

He has some advice for those traveling for the upcoming holidays.

"When people are leaving and going for their planned holidays and they're traveling just always make sure they give themselves plenty of space between cars, go the speed limit, and plan for things like the unexpected; people pulling out in front of them," McCormick said.

ISP issued 25 warnings and 17 tickets within the 2-hour period.

They are planning to track aggressive driving again at the beginning of 2018.
