6-State Trooper Project to Focus on Interstate 70

COLUMBUS – The Ohio State Highway Patrol will be joining forces with members of the 6-State Trooper Project to enforce speed, safety belts and OVI on Interstate 70.

The project will run from 12:01 a.m. on October 7 through 11:59 p.m. on October 9. The high-visibility campaign includes the Indiana State Police, Pennsylvania State Police and the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Last year during the same 6-State initiative, the Patrol cited 297 drivers for speed-related violations and 21 for safety belt infractions. The Patrol also charged five 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 information sharing.
