State police from Maine to Connecticut came to Massachusetts Monday to talk about an integrated approach to what they call “problem drivers.”

State Police Col. Timothy Alben said there were eight fatal crashes in Massachusetts in 2011 and eight other crashes that ended with serious injuries.

“If you’re going to drive drunk or type on you cell phone behind the wheel or aggressively tailgate, all of us from Bar Harbor to Hartford, from Providence to Montpelier, from Provincetown to North Conway, will be looking for you,” Alben said.
