COLUMBUS, Ohio (WDTN) — Ohio State Troopers along with agencies from five other states will be patrolling the highways for violations this weekend.
Troopers from Ohio and five other states will will be patrolling I-75 to look for any speed, seat belt, or OVI violations.
Troopers said there were more 14,151 OVI-related crashes on Ohio roadways in 2015. In those crashes, 390 people were killed and 8,435 others were injured.
“Our troopers look for violations that are proven to increase the likelihood of fatal crashes, including speed, safety belt and OVI,” said Col. Paul Pride, Patrol superintendent. “The goal is for every motorist in Ohio and our neighboring states to get home safely.”
The initiative began on Friday and will end on Monday.
