State Police to have a heavy presence on I-94 this week

An effort to cut down the number of accidents on I-94 begins today in Michigan and several other Midwest states. Michigan State Police troopers will be looking for semi truck driver violations that are most likely to contribute to a crash including speeding, following too close, distracted driving and improper passing. State Police say the I-94 corridor is prone to weather-related crashes during this time of the year. While targeting commercial vehicles, Michigan State Police Inspector Patrick Morris says other drivers should also be on alert. The “Eyes On 94” effort will take place over the next five days from the Indiana border to the Blue Water Bridge.
