"Distracted driving is a reckless and dangerous behavior," said Col. Paul A. Pride. "If you're behind the wheel, you need to be completely focused on driving. The Ohio State Highway Patrol and our law enforcement partners in our neighboring states know the devastating effects of distracted driving,"

The multi-state trooper project is a law enforcement partnership aimed at providing combined and coordinated law enforcement and security services in the areas of highway safety, criminal patrol and intelligence sharing.
