‘Super Drunk’ Law Targets Drunk Drivers

Posted by Joseph Awad | Mar 27, 2012 | 0 Comments

The Michigan city of Bloomfield Hills has taken another step in the war against drink driving. The city recently voted to put the “super drunk” law into effect locally. The “super drunk” law primarily targets first time offenders which have a BAC level of .17 or higher, which is twice the legal limit—hence the “super drunk” moniker. Those in violation of the law can expect harsher penalties, like fines of up to $700, double jail time and the immobilization of the offender's vehicle with an in-car Breathalyzer.

The “super drunk” law had already been passed on a state level but now it can be enforced on a local level allowing the city to collect fees from offenders.

Since the penalties for drunk driving are going up it's even more important to have skilled legal representation. Feel free to contact Michigan DUI lawyer Joseph F. Awad for help with such matters.
