DETROIT — From Monday, Nov. 27, through Friday, Dec. 1, Michigan State Police (MSP) are holding “Eyes on 94,” a special event along Interstate 94 aimed at commercial motor vehicle safety.
According to a news release, troopers will be watching for speeding, following too close, 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,” said 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.”
“Eyes on 94” is part of the statewide Drive Toward Zero Deaths traffic safety campaign.
