LANSING, Mich. (WILX) -- Starting Monday, you'll be seeing more police officers on an interstate, known for it's heavy truck traffic.

It's referred to as the "Eyes on 94".

It's an enforcement effort all about preventing truck crashes on the busy highway.

Officers will be targeting truck drivers who are speeding, tailgating too closely behind another vehicle.

They'll also be looking out for distracted driving and improper lane use.

Officers in Indiana and Ohio are also taking part in the operation.

The annual traffic crackdown results in hundreds of tickets being handed out each year.

State police say the effort is to increase awareness during this time of the year, because I-94 is prone to weather related crashes.

The crackdown starts December 3rd and runs through December 7th.
