Ohio - Aerial VASCAR, Ohio State Highway Patrol
For anyone who either lives or travels through Ohio - the latter particularly on high-travel days, consider yourselves warned.
Aerial VASCAR is in-practice.

What does a VASCAR/pacing marker look like? - Radar Detector Jammer Forum
There was even an extended feature on the Ohio State Highway Patrol and its use of airborne VASCAR enforcement in the April, 2007 issue of Car and Driver magazine (article by John Phillips, pages 84 through 90, "Flying Fuzz: Busted from Cloud Nine").
It's no joke.
In Ohio, I've seen both bands crossing the actual highway/roadway, as well as simply markings on the shoulders.
Either may or may not be "fresh" - and the ones on the shoulders, when they're degraded, are rather hard to see from the roadway, as a driver, particularly if you drive a low-slung vehicle.
Keep on the lookout.
I found out the hard way. I got a ticket last Friday 5 exits from the W VA line on 77 S.
Just wondering if there is any hope of getting out of the ticket or having it reduced?
I was cited for 83 in a 65 by air not VASCAR. Any help would be appreciated
What I want to know is why doesn't someone just re-paint the markings on the side of the road :D
I got pulled over for five over (80 in a 75) on the turnpike to Miami, OK about two weeks ago. I told him five over is a bit tight and he said they were tighter when using aircraft. I wanted to ask if that was because they needed to pay for the airplane but resisted the urge to be a smartass. Fortunately, I got a warning. There is no reason to have a different standard based on the different vehicles they use to nail you. However, that may be the policy in many other places.
