Extra Patrols Now Out On Michigan Roads

Michigan State Police will have expanded patrols this Labor Day weekend. It’s once again time for Operation CARE, or Crash Awareness and Reduction Efforts. In addition to more troopers being out on the roads, more than 150 local enforcement agencies will have extra patrols. Police are also taking a zero tolerance approach to drunk driving with the national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign. Last year, there were ten fatal traffic crashes on Michigan Roads during the Labor Day travel period. State police remind everyone to buckle up, put down their phones when behind the wheel, and to pay attention to what other drivers are doing. The Labor Day travel period runs through 11:59 p.m. Monday, September 4.
