State trooper enforcement initiative focuses on I-70

The Ohio State Highway Patrol will be join forces with five other members of the 6-State Trooper Project to enforce speed, safety belt and OVI violations on Interstate 70.

The enforcement initiative, which starts at 12:01 a.m. Friday and runs through 11:59 p.m. Sunday, is an effort to reduce unsafe driving behaviors along the I-70 corridor.

During last year’s same 6-State initiative, 392 people were issued citations for speed, 40 for safety belt violations and six people were cited for OVI across Ohio.

The 6-State Trooper Project comprises the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Indiana State Police, Kentucky State Police, Michigan State Police, Pennsylvania State Police and West Virginia State Police.
