Michigan State Police will be looking for drunk drivers this Christmas
The Michigan State Police say they will be out in full force during their annual drive safe campaign. During the Christmas holiday last year, there were 13 fatal crashes in Michigan, with at least nine involving alcohol.
State Police Lieutenant Mike Shaw says troopers are looking for specific road problems this holiday season.
“The big three I guess is the way to talk about most traffic crashes that occur," Shaw said. "The first one is excessive speed the second is following to closely and the third is distracted or impared driving.”
Shaw says drivers should expect additional State Police patrols on the roads through New Year’s Day.
