Michigan State Police troopers are joining officers from Indiana and Ohio next week to focus their enforcement on I-94 in Michigan and other major freeways in Indiana, Illinois, and Ohio in a coordinated enforcement operation. Michigan’s operation is dubbed “Eyes on 94” and seeks to reduce commercial vehicle crashes along the I-94 corridor.

This multi-state effort will take place Monday through Friday next week. During the effort, they will focus on violations by commercial vehicles most likely to contribute to a crash. Those include speeding, following too close, improper passing, distracted driving and improper lane use.

“This enforcement effort is a great example of the commitment by the MSP, Indiana State Police, Illinois State Police and the Ohio Highway Patrol to reach our common goal of increasing traffic safety and reducing crashes. 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.” Capt. Michael Krumm, commander of the MSP Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division.
