Michigan State Police targeting aggressive car, truck drivers this week

March 24, 2020

 

(WXYZ) — Beginning this week, Michigan State Police will crack down on truck safety enforcement along the I-94 corridor between Jackson and Detroit.

 

The campaign, Ticketing Aggressive Cars and Trucks, aims to reduce crashes, fatalities and serious injuries between passenger vehicles and commercial drivers.

 

“Crashes between commercial motor vehicles and passenger vehicles often result in serious and fatal injuries,” said Dr. Daniel Blower, chair of the Michigan Truck Safety Commission, in a release. “The TACT campaign focuses on enforcement and education efforts for both car and truck drivers to reduce crashes, fatalities and serious injuries. There will be zero tolerance for aggressive driving.”

 

MSP says crashes involving commercial motor vehicles have increased 15 percent in the past five years. To encourage safe driving around trucks, the enforcement campaign will take place June 3-7 and June 10-14, between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. every day.

 

Officers will be on the lookout for violations by both passenger vehicles and commercial motor vehicles such as improper lane use, careless and reckless driving, speeding, following too closely and failure to yield the right-of-way.
