Same up here in Michigan on I-94, only it was around six cop cars (aside from the weigh station regulars). Everything I saw they had pulled over up here was a semi except for one unlucky pickup driver. Is this just a big month to crack down on semi's and make extra money?

The I-94 crackdown was publicized.

LOL, ah, I missed that. They could generate much more revenue and actually make a difference if they put that much effort into pulling four wheelers over. Just tonight (as always), the folks who were tailgating me, passing on the right, weaving in and out of traffic with less than 3 feet to spare, slamming on their brakes from following too closely, and running well over the posted speed limit were all four wheelers. I saw four semis doing what they shouldn't (two running over 70mph, one following less than a second behind another semi, and one weaving across the fog and center line); I lost count of the SUV's, pickups, and cars who were creating much more dangerous situations. This was from Battle Creek to Southfield and back again (7:45am-9:40am and 7:50pm-10pm).

We need to start a lobbyist group like MADD...maybe TOADD (Truckers Organization to Abolish Dangerous Drivers). :) Hmm, maybe my acronym needs a bit of a change though. I've got it....****ED (Professionals Insistent on Safe, Sensible, Educated, Drivers).
