The Ohio State Highway Patrol is joining weekend efforts to reduce traffic deaths and injuries along interstates 90 and 94.

Participating agencies in several states have set a goal of zero fatalities and fewer than 300 total crashes along the interstates beginning Friday and lasting through Monday.

Officers in 15 states are part of the four-day highway safety effort.

Data from the last three years show that more fatal crashes happen Friday through Monday of each week along both interstates than any other four-day period.

Troopers are urging motorists to slow down, wear seat belts, drive sober and pay attention.
