6-State Trooper Project targeted speed, safety belt, OVI on I-75

COLUMBUS – During the latest 6-State Trooper Project, the Ohio State Highway Patrol and other members of the partnership targeted speed, safety belt and OVI violations along I-75. OSHP issued 573 speed citations, 78 safety belt citations and six OVI arrests as part of the enforcement from Friday, February 19 at 12:01 a.m. through Sunday, February 21 at 11:59 p.m.

The Kentucky State Police and Michigan State Police also participated in the effort.

“It is crucial to the safety of our motorists that we take speeding, impaired driving and safety belt use seriously,” said Colonel Paul Pride, Patrol superintendent. “Far too many people lose their lives traveling on our roadways.”

The 6-State Trooper Project is a multi-state law enforcement partnership aimed at providing combined and coordinated law enforcement and security services in the areas of highway safety, criminal patrol and intelligence sharing. It includes the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Kentucky State Police, Indiana State Police, Pennsylvania State Police, West Virginia State Police and the Michigan State Police.
