State Police to Participate in Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Operation on I-94

Michigan State Police (MSP) motor carrier officers will be focusing their enforcement on I-94 in a coordinated enforcement operation. Michigan’s operation is dubbed “Eyes on 94” seeks to reduce commercial vehicle crashes along the I-94 corridor. This statewide effort will take place from November 27 to December 1, 2023.

During this initiative, motor carrier officers will focus on violations by commercial vehicles that are most likely to contribute to a crash. Those include 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,” stated 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.”

Commercial vehicle enforcement initiatives allow for enforcement resources to collectively focus attention on safety concerns involving interstate traffic. The MSP’s participation in these initiatives aims to increase the safety of those traveling on Michigan roads.

The “Eyes on 94” initiative is part of the statewide Drive Toward Zero Deaths traffic safety campaign, which is based on the national strategy on highway safety that seeks to reduce the number of traffic deaths nationwide.
