Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Enforcement to Run Through January 1

Before and during the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, law enforcement officials throughout Michigan are participating in the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign.

To protect lives, there will be increased patrols on roads from this Friday to January 1, with zero tolerance for those who drive impaired. Throughout 2022 in Michigan, there were 9,331 alcohol-involved crashes with 322 fatalities, and 2,452 drug-involved crashes with 249 fatalities statewide, according to the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute.

State Police, county sheriff offices and municipal police agencies across Michigan are encouraging motorists to celebrate safely and make smart driving decisions.
