Michigan state law enforcement will target unsafe truckers along the I-94 corridor between Jackson and Detroit this month.
The two-week enforcement, June 3-7 and June 10-14 from 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. each day, will focus on unsafe truck driving behavior.
The campaign, “Ticketing Aggressive Cars and Trucks,” aims to reduce crashes, fatalities and serious injuries between passenger vehicles and commercial drivers.
Motor carrier officers and state troopers will conduct TACT enforcement activities, looking for improper lane use, careless and reckless driving, speeding, following too closely, failure to yield the right-of-way and more.
“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.”
