At 7:30a.m., like every morning, Bryan Laviolette left his home, hopped in his car and started the long drive to work from Howell to Lansing.
But his usual 45 minute commute, will be a little longer today and it's not because of the weather.
"You never know what this guy is going to do. You don't know what his motive is, why he's doing this," says Laviolette.
This "guy" is the serial shooter who's been terrorizing Mid-Michigan highways for two weeks now.
Laviolette normally takes 1-96 into Lansing, but this week, and possibly until he's caught, Laviolette's chosen to ride the backroads and avoid the highway as much as possible.
"I really dislike it that he has affected my life in anyway. As far as I'm concerned, he's a terrorist. It's just a small thing that I can do to be safe," says Laviolette.
The detour adds about 10 to 15 minutes to his commute, with a little more stop and go traffic, but as many agree, it's better to be safe than sorry.
"I just refuse to allow this guy to affect me in that way. There could just as easily be someone who dies because they're trying to look for this black sedan he's driving and they lose control of their car then there's a chance of being his by one of his bullets," he says.
But there is a chance, and if all it takes is a little change to bring a lot of piece of mind, this detour is well worth it.
Authorities are offering $102,000 to catch the shooter. If you have any information, call 1-800-Speak-Up or CrimeStoppers at 517-483-STOP.
