COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Troopers from six states are targeting distracted drivers in the latest of a series of highway enforcement efforts.

The 6-State Trooper Project brings together officers from the State Highway Patrol in Ohio and state police in Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

The Ohio patrol's superintendent, Paul Pride, says too many motorists fail to consider the potential consequences of distracted driving.

The distracted driving project will run through Saturday, July 25. An effort earlier this year focused on proper seat belt and child safety seat use.

The project brings troopers together on issues of highway safety, criminal patrol and intelligence-sharing.
