LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Commercial Motor Vehicle Enforcement Division of the Michigan State Police is stepping up efforts to eliminate traffic deaths.

The agency announced Monday that it’s participating in the nationwide “Toward Zero Deaths” traffic safety initiative.

As part of the effort, officers will increase enforcement in areas and during times with the highest rate of crashes, as identified by crash data. Officers will focus on moving violations by commercial motor vehicles, including speeding, driving while fatigued and distracted driving.

Banners with the “Toward Zero Deaths” logo will be displayed at weigh stations and enforcement locations.

Michigan State Police say that in 2014 there were 27 people killed in Michigan crashes involving commercial motor vehicles.
