MSP Announce Drunk Driving, Seat belt Enforcement this Weekend
05/22/2020- Restaurants and bars across the UP will begin opening back up today. The new order takes effect as the holiday weekend kicks off and while many people are excited to visit friends and family along with visiting their favorite establishments, the Michigan State Police are reminding everyone to be safe, practice social distancing, not to drink and drive, and to always wear their seat belt. The MSP will have extra patrols out this holiday weekend targeting impaired driving, aggressive/reckless driving, along with seat belt use enforcement. The long holiday weekend marks the unofficial start of summer vacation season, but travel volume is expected to be noticeably lower this year in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
