Drunk Driving Enforcement Steps Up

The so-called “Big Dance” got under way this weekend and police in Michigan are continuing a special campaign targeting drunk drivers leaving parties and bars after celebrating NCAA basketball victories. Lynn Sutfin, of the Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning, says the federally-funded extra enforcement began just before St. Patrick’s Day involving 144 agencies in 26 counties. She admits that the extra patrols have paid off in the past, since officers last year made 2, 271 arrests for drunk driving during March Madness, 671 were arrested under the state’s high blood-alcohol content law and more than 500 of those arrests were made by grant-funded law enforcement agencies.
