The Ohio State Highway Patrol joined forces with members of the 6-State Trooper Project for a high-visibility enforcement effort focused on crash causing violations from Friday, February 21st, at 12:01 a.m. through Sunday, February 23rd, at 11:59 p.m. Troopers targeted safety belt, aggressive driving and OVI– related violations along the Interstate 75 corridor. The initiative included members of the Michigan State Police, Kentucky State Police and the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
During the effort, officers in all three states handed out 2,086 speed citations, 332 safety belt violations and arrested 86 impaired drivers. Of those, troopers in Ohio contributed 796 speed citations, 90 safety belt violations and 16 impaired driving arrests.
The multi-state law enforcement partnership, according to officials, is aimed at providing combined and coordinated law enforcement and security services in the areas of highway safety, criminal patrol and intelligence sharing
