Sanilac and Tuscola Sheriff's Offices & MSP plan OWI Crackdown to Save Lives

(AREA) -- In an effort to save lives this summer, the Sanilac and Tuscola County Sheriff's Departments and Michigan State Police Caro Post have launched a special "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" crackdown to stop impaired drivers. Sanilac County Sheriff Garry Biniecki, Tuscola County Sheriff Lee Teschendorf and Lt. Mitch Krugielki say their deputies and Troopers will be aggressively looking for drunk drivers and will arrest anyone caught driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. In 2010, more than 10,000 people were killed nationwide in traffic crashes involving an impaired driver. Data shows that among those alcohol-impaired-driving fatalities, 71 percent occurred when drivers had nearly twice the legal limit of alcohol in their system. The special enforcement crackdown started June 1 and will run through August 31.
