504 Citations Issued in Ohio During 6-State Trooper Project’s I-75 Enforcement


COLUMBUS – The Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) joined forces with other members of the 6-State Trooper Project to focus on speed, safety belts, and OVI enforcement on Interstate 75. During the project, 504 people in Ohio were issued citations including 454 for speed and 44 for safety belt violations. Additionally, six people were cited for OVI.

The I-75 high-visibility enforcement effort included the Kentucky State Police, Michigan State Police, and OSHP. The initiative began on Friday, February 16 at 12:01 a.m. and continued through Sunday, February 18 at 11:59 p.m.

Collectively, troopers from Kentucky, Michigan, and Ohio cited 846 during the multi-state enforcement effort, including 741 drivers for speed-related violations and 93 for safety belt infractions. An additional 12 were cited with OVI.

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. The state police agencies in Indiana, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia did not participate in this enforcement effort, as this initiative only included I-75.
