CHICO, Calif. — Officers with the Chico police traffic unit used a high-tech device called Lidar Wednesday to monitor drivers speeding west on the Skyway, where the posted speed limit drops to 45 mph at the Chico city limits.

Nearly two dozen motorists, all going more than 60 mph, were pulled over and ticketed in a two-hour period.
