The State Police of Michigan have announced a Labor Day Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over anti-drunk driving campaign.
The 2016 annual state-wide joint DUI task force campaign is already underway, and continues through September 5, 2016. For this particular campaign, Michigan State Police are joining with local and county police and Sheriff departments to maximize drunk driving patrols.
According to the National Highway Safety Administration’s Standardized Field Sobriety Training Manual, as many as 10 percent of drivers on the road during late night and weekend hours may be driving while intoxicated. During certain holidays the figure may go even higher. Furthermore, that a typical drunk driving offender drives drunk about 80 times per year.
