VIDEO: Ohio trooper catches semi truck driving down the middle of US 30, driver admits to watching video


The Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) shared dash cam and police body cam video of a trooper’s recent encounter with a truck driver as a reminder to avoid distracted driving.

The video was shared by OSHP on December 29, 2022. It was captured on US 30 in Crawford County.

In the video, a trooper from the Bucyrus Post spots a truck driving down the center of the highway. The trooper initiates a traffic stop and asks the truck driver why he wasn’t maintaining his lane.

Without much hesitation, the driver admits that he was watching a camera feed from his home.

“That’s distracted driving,” the trooper says. “You can’t be watching your cameras at home while you’re driving a truck.”
