Dedicated to removing impaired drivers, the 6-State Trooper Project has led to 399 OVI arrests. 

In an effort to crack down on drunk driving and enforce safer roads, the Ohio State Highway Patrol launched the 6-State Trooper Project.

Considered to be a high-visibility enforcement launch, the Indiana State Police, Kentucky State Police, Michigan State Police, Ohio State Highway Patrol, Pennsylvania State Police and the West Virginia State Police all joined forces from December 4th through December 7th and 796 OVI arrests were made across the six states. In Ohio, this marks an 81% increase from 2013 and a 41% increase from this same initiative launched in 2014. 

“We are committed to working with our neighboring states for effective and meaningful change on our roadways,” said Colonel Paul A. Pride, Patrol superintendent.

The offices of Lipson O’Shea are always open. No matter where you are or what time of day, we will be ready to give you the legal counsel you need in all DUI and OVI matters.
