Traffic enforcement stepped up by MSP

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Starting Friday, the Michigan State Police will once again join forces with other state patrols to step up traffic enforcement.

The "I-94/90 Challenge To Save Lives" is a coordinated traffic enforcement initiative along Interstates 90 and 94 from Washington to New York.

Troopers will look out for seat belt use, speeding, aggressive and impaired driving.

The initiative runs through August 4th.

A similar effort from earlier this month resulted in 67 texting citations and 77 careless/reckless driving citations across Michigan.
