Troopers in six states will soon be kicking off a weeklong traffic enforcement effort targeting unsafe drivers.
The enforcement effort is dubbed the “Six-State Trooper Project” and will take place July 18th-24th.
Troopers from Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia will participate in the effort.
“During this period, motorists can expect to see an increased presence of our troopers on the roadsides conducting traffic stops. Drivers are encouraged to not drive distracted, to be increasingly aware of the need to move over or slow down as required by state law, and to give your troopers room to work safely,” the Indiana State Patrol (ISP) said.
Troopers will be emphasizing violations of Indiana’s Move Over/Slow Down law, which requires drivers to move to an adjacent traffic lane or reduce speed by 10 mph below the posted speed limit if unable to change lanes safely, when driving by a stationary police, fire or ambulance emergency vehicle stopped along the side of the road.
