Michigan law enforcement will continue a campaign that is focused on increased monitoring of intoxicated driving throughout the state. The annual campaign is called Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, and it will continue through July 19. As part of this drunk driving campaign, there will be increased police presence along roads and zero tolerance for impaired driving will be the focus.
There is no set schedule for when the increased police presence will be in place as this is up to the discretion of the individual police jurisdiction. In the summer, especially around national holidays such as the Fourth of July, there are increased numbers of travelers. There are also higher numbers of drunk driving arrests and accidents. This campaign aims to prevent additional injuries and death, as well as bring awareness to the dangers of intoxicated driving.
In Michigan, a drunk driving conviction can bring serious penalties. It may leave a driver facing the possibility of jail time, expensive fines and more. A driver may lose his or her license, and a mark on a criminal record can affect long-term job and educational opportunities. It is crucial to defend against these charges and fight for future interests.
It is beneficial for someone facing drunk driving charges to reach out to an experienced defense attorney as soon as possible. With the right help, it may be possible to mitigate penalties and effectively confront the prosecution’s case. This is important for anyone in this serious legal situation, regardless of previous convictions or the details of the individual case.
