Pennsylvania State Police and troopers from five other states are looking for texting, unsafe lane changes and other distracted driving violations as part of a multi-state enforcement blitz now through Saturday.

The “6-State Trooper Project” is a partnership aimed at combining resources, intelligence, and unified enforcement efforts. Besides Pennsylvania, others participating include the Ohio State Highway Patrol, West Virginia State Police, Kentucky State Police, Michigan State Police and Indiana State Police.

Speeding, lane changes by drifting or without signaling, tailgating and other violations that may be caused by distracted driving will be focused on for enforcement, authorities said.

In Pennsylvania, it is a summary offense and a $50 fine to use a wireless communication device to compose, send or read a text message while operating a motor vehicle.
