Michigan State Police are teaming up with local law enforcement agencies to monitor drivers in three counties Wednesday.

The department's metro north post will conduct a joint traffic initiative with Oakland and Macomb County sheriff's offices to heading out along M-59 and M-53.

There will be a heavy police presence watching the roadways until 2 p.m. today and from 8 p.m. through midnight, police said.

The department's south post will be on the Lodge between Eight Mile and Jefferson 8 p.m. through midnight.

"The focus of these details will be aggressive traffic enforcement targeting distracted driving, reckless and careless driving, seat belts and excessive speed," MSP tweeted.
