Mich. takes part in I-94 commercial vehicle operation
New Buffalo — Police in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio are planning a coordinated enforcement operation that seeks to reduce commercial vehicle crashes along the Interstate 94 corridor and other major freeways.
The effort involving Michigan State Police, Indiana State Police and the Ohio State Highway Patrol takes place Monday through Friday.
The enforcement operation is dubbed “Eyes on 94.” Motor carrier officers will focus on violations by commercial vehicles that are most likely to contribute to a crash, including speeding, following too closely, improper passing, distracted driving and improper lane use.
The initiative is part of the “Toward Zero Deaths” traffic safety campaign, which is based on the national strategy on highway safety.
