Commercial vehicle enforcement focus on I-94 this week

Dec. 5, 2016
Michigan State Police motor carrier officers will join officers from the Indiana State Police and Ohio State Highway Patrol in focusing their enforcement on I-94 and other major freeways in Ohio and Indiana in a coordinated enforcement operation dubbed “Eyes on 94” that seeks to reduce commercial vehicle crashes along the I-94 corridor. This multi-state effort will take place from Dec. 5 - 9.

Michigan State Police (MSP) motor carrier officers will join officers from the Indiana State Police and Ohio State Highway Patrol in focusing their enforcement on I-94 and other major freeways in Ohio and Indiana in a coordinated enforcement operation dubbed “Eyes on 94” that seeks to reduce commercial vehicle crashes along the I-94 corridor.  This multi-state effort will take place from Dec. 5 - 9.

During this initiative, motor carrier officers will focus on violations by commercial vehicles that are most likely to contribute to a crash, which include speeding, following too closely, improper passing, distracted driving and improper lane use.

“This enforcement effort is a great example of the commitment by the MSP, Indiana State Police and Ohio State Highway Patrol to reach our common goal of increasing traffic safety and reducing crashes,” stated Capt. Michael Krumm, 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 corridor, which is prone to weather-related crashes this time of year.”

Multi-state commercial vehicle enforcement initiatives allow for neighboring states to align their resources to collectively focus attention on safety concerns involving interstate traffic. The MSP’s participation in these joint initiatives aims to increase the safety of those traveling on Michigan roads.

The “Eyes on 94” initiative is part of the statewide 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.

“In 2015, Michigan saw a 20 percent reduction in fatal crashes involving commercial motor vehicles, and operations like this help to ensure that our busiest roadways are also our safest,” added Krumm.
