The Highway Patrol will be looking for speeders Wednesday morning.

Department of Public Safety Sgt. Steven Sekrecki said a special detail is planned for 7 a.m. to noon on State Route 347 between Maricopa and Interstate 10. State Troopers will be aided by units from Maricopa Police Department, Sekrecki said, but the number of law enforcement officers has not been announced.

He said DPS warns people ahead of conducting these details because the goal is slowing down traffic rather than ticketing drivers.

    Oh what a crock. People will slowdown while the cops are there, and then go right back to speeding as soon as the cops are gone.

    So the only benefit to come out of it is ticket revenue that can be extracted.
