DETROIT -

Ease up, drivers. They're watching.

Michigan State Police say they're putting more emphasis on catching aggressive motorists on Detroit-area freeways, through Aug. 9.

Speeding, texting, tailgating and improper phone use could cause a state trooper to put on the flashers. State police say there have been more complaints about aggressive driving, especially at rush hour.

Troopers will be in unmarked patrol cars, but unmarked cars will not be used to make stops.
