COLUMBUS, Ohio (WDTN) – Troopers from six states will be stepping up enforcement of distracted driving laws this week.

A 6-State Trooper Project begins July 17 and runs through July 23.

Ohio State Highway Patrol and law enforcement from Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania and West Virginia will be participating.

“If you’re behind the wheel, you need to be completely focused on driving, said Col. Paul A. Pride, Patrol superintendent. “Distracted driving is reckless behavior that is taken seriously by the troopers of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, as well as law enforcement of our neighboring states.”
