Extra police officers will be on patrol along the nearly 2,000 miles of Interstate 95 this weekend.

Authorities said law enforcement officials will be focusing on aggressive driving, distracted driving, speeding and seat belt use, as well as motorcycle, pedestrian and commercial vehicle safety, during the Saturday blitz.

Police from all 15 states along the 1,920 miles of I-95 -- including Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware -- are participating.

The campaign is part of an effort to reduce highway fatalities, according to Delaware State Police, which is coordinating the enforcement initiative.
