UNDATED (WHTC) -- The Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning wants you to drive sober this 4th of July weekend. The “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” effort runs through July 7th. Law enforcement officers from 156 agencies are putting extra officers out on the road as part of a statewide drunk driving crackdown. In Michigan, it’s illegal to drive with a blood-alcohol content of .08 or higher, although motorists can be arrested no matter the BAC level if an officer feels they are impaired. Overtime drunk driving enforcement is part of Michigan’s Strategic Highway Plan. The next statewide drunk driving crackdown is slated for August 16th through September 2nd.
