Michigan has cracked down on drunk drivers and traffic violators. In 2006, the Michigan legislature again amended Michigan’s drunk driving laws. A third offense is now a felony and the entire adult driving history is considered in the determination. Previously only the prior 10-year history was considered.
Also passed was the 2003 Driver Responsibility Act, which is affecting more drivers in Michigan. Under this act, whenever a driver has accumulated seven or more points on his or her driving record, the Secretary of State will impose heavy additional fines on that driver.
In addition, certain offenses such as driving while impaired, driving with a suspended license or no proof of insurance, to name a few, require payment of heavy fines, regardless of the number of points the driver has on his or her driving record.
