Michigan police begin crackdown on Interstate 75 this weekend



The Michigan State Police will begin a statewide crackdown on commercial vehicles on Interstate 75 this Sunday.

The operation, called “Stay Alive on Interstate 75,” will operate on the highway from the Michigan-Ohio state line to the International Bridge in Sault Ste. Mary of the upper peninsula.

This operation will continue until August 13th. This is the latest initiative in Drive Toward Zero Deaths, a statewide road safety campaign aimed at reducing traffic accidents involving commercial vehicles.

Motor carrier officials enforce actions most likely to lead to collisions, such as distracted driving, driving too close, improper passing, speeding, improper lane use, and slowing to overcome violations. .

Troopers will focus on all vehicles that are involved in these dangerous driving behaviors.

Richard Arnold, MSP Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Commander. “This coordinated maneuver aims to increase awareness of unsafe driving behavior with high-visibility enforcement on the I-75 highway.”
