6-State Trooper Project to focus on Interstate 75


COLUMBUS – The Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) is joining forces with other members of the 6-State Trooper Project to focus on speed, safety belts, and OVI enforcement on Interstate 75.

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

The enforcement initiative is an effort to reduce unsafe driving behaviors along the Interstate 75 corridor. During last year’s same 6-State initiative, the Patrol issued 618 people citations for speed, 52 for safety belt violations, and 12 were cited for 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.
