Over 200 cited for impaired driving during trooper project

The Ohio State Highway Patrol joined forces with other members of the 6-State Trooper Project to focus on impaired driving enforcement. During the project, 237 people in Ohio were cited for impaired driving.

The high-visibility enforcement included the Indiana State Police, Kentucky State Police, Michigan State Police, Pennsylvania State Police and the West Virginia State Police, as well the Patrol. The initiative began on Friday, Dec. 4 at 12:01 a.m. and continued through Sunday, Dec. 6 at 11:59 p.m.

Motorists are encouraged to commit to safer roads by planning ahead, designating a sober driver and ensuring that everyone in the vehicle is buckled up.
