Troopers launch big rig compliance crackdown in Michigan

Published:

This week, Michigan State Police (MSP) will be out in force for a big rig compliance crackdown along a busy traffic corridor.

From November 27 to December 1, 2023, MSP will be taking part in the “Eyes on 94” commercial vehicle enforcement effort along the I-94 corridor.

The purpose of “Eyes on 94” is to reduce commercial vehicle crashes by increasing CMV traffic enforcement.

Troopers will be on the lookout for commercial vehicle violations like 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 to reach crash reduction goals while increasing traffic safety,” stated Capt. Richard Arnold, commander of the MSP Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division. “We hope to increase awareness by means of high visibility enforcement on the I- 94 corridor, which is prone to weather-related crashes involving interstate commercial vehicle drivers this time of year.”

MSP’s “Eyes on 94” effort is part of the larger statewide Drive 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.
