Michigan State Police will join officers from Indiana, Illinois, and Ohio police departments to focus enforcement on 1-94 and other major freeways in the 4 states from December 3rd through the 7th. Multi-state commercial vehicle enforcement initiatives allow for neighboring states to align their resources to collectively focus attention on safety concerns involving interstate traffic.
Michigan’s operation is dubbed “Eyes on 94” with hopes of reducing commercial vehicle crashes along the I-94 corridor.
MSP will focus on commercial vehicle violations such as speeding, distracted driving, and others that are most likely to contribute to a crash.
“We hope to increase awareness by means of high visibility enforcement on the I-94 corridor, which is prone to weather-related crashes this time of year involving interstate commercial vehicle drivers,” stated Capt. Michael Krumm, commander of the MSP Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division.
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.
