Police in These Four States Are Set To Blitz Commercial Vehicles This Week

Lansing, MI — Police in four states are set to conduct a five-day law enforcement blitz on commercial motor vehicles this week.

The multi-state campaign dubbed “Eyes on 94” kicks off on Monday, December 6, and will conclude on Friday, December 10.




 

During the initiative, motor carrier officers with Michigan State Police (MSP), Indiana State Police, Illinois State Police, and Ohio State Highway Patrol will be ramping up enforcement of violations on Interstate 94 and other major freeways.

Specifically, officials will be looking for distracted driving, following too close, improper passing, speeding, and improper lane use.

“This enforcement effort is a great example of the commitment to reach our common goal of increasing traffic safety and reducing crashes,” stated Capt. Richard Arnold, Commander of the MSP Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division. “This coordinated operation is an effort to increase awareness by means of high visibility enforcement on the I-94 freeway, which is prone to weather-related crashes involving interstate commercial vehicle drivers this time of year.”




 

The “Eyes on 94” initiative is part of the statewide Drive Toward Zero Deaths traffic safety campaign, which is based on the national strategy on highway safety that seeks to reduce the number of traffic deaths nationwide.
