Police Officers Pull Over 15,000 Vehicles
Michigan law enforcement agencies stopped nearly 15,000 vehicles and arrested 169 suspected drunken drivers as part of a late summer crackdown.
Officers from 150 local police departments, sheriff's offices and Michigan State Police posts also issued more than 4,500 seat belt and child restraint citations during "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over," which ran Aug. 15 through the Labor Day weekend.
Officers also issued nearly 1,200 citations for speeding, 550 citations for driving with a suspended license and nearly 900 citations to uninsured motorists.
The state's Office of Highway Safety Planning coordinated the enforcement by administering federal traffic safety funds to departments.
