Motor carrier officers in four states will be stepping up enforcement on commercial vehicle drivers next week.
Starting on Monday, December 3 and running through Friday, December 7, troopers from Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, and Michigan will be conducting a major truck enforcement blitz called “Eyes on 94.”
As always during the annual “Eyes on 94” enforcement campaign, troopers will be monitoring I-94 and nearby connecting highways for commercial vehicle violations that are likely to contribute to crashes.
These violations include:
- Following too close
- Improper passing
- Distracted driving
- 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,” said Michigan State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division Commander Capt. Michael Krumm.
During last year’s five day Eyes on 94 campaign, troopers in Michigan alone stopped more than 700 trucks, issued 350 citations and 373 warnings.
