It is being reported that police from Michigan and six other states will engage in ramped-up efforts to crack down on drinking and driving this 4th of July weekend. On Friday night, police and the other states will focus on the I-94 corridor as it is reportedly the "busiest and most injury-crash-prone corridor in Michigan ," according to Michigan State Police Capt. Harold Love. Police patrols will be aided by aerial surveillance in the metro Detroit area and near Jackson .
The I-94 Corridor Enforcement Project will coincide with a statewide Drunk Driving: Over the Limit, Under Arrest campaign that will run through July 11 in 30 counties.
A DUI or OWI conviction can have numerous negative consequences. Of course, imprisonment is one of the most serious consequences. However, even losing your driver's license for an extended period of time can cause economic hardship and a great deal of stress. Relying upon friends, family members, and public transportation to get to and from work or school is not only a hassle, but you may not be able to get where you need to go on time. You may also face fines, community service and probation for a conviction. Loss of employment is yet another potential side effect.
