Police are gearing up for one of their busiest nights of the year. Officers will be out in force, looking for drunk drivers and responding to any problems.
They want to remind you that Michigan has a zero tolerance policy for people who get behind the wheel when they shouldn't. Along with the dangers of driving while intoxicated [0.8 blood alcohol level], a DUI can also mean legal fees around $2,000-3,000, a suspended license for three to six months and spending at least one night in jail.
According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (M.A.D.D.), in 2011 nearly 10,000 people died in drunk driving crashes in the United States. They say the average drunk driver has driven drunk 80 times before getting caught.
Jackson Attorney Jerry Engle says many people arrested for driving under the influence have the best intentions.
"A lot of times it's people who don't drink that much, but for some reason, had the extra drink that night," said Engle. "Far more horrendous than the prison or jail term that can come out of it, is just the effects on a person's life."
In Michigan, three DUI's is a felony that will forever be on your record, which you'll be required to disclose, even in job interviews.
"You're going to fill out your employment form, they're going to get you, talk to you, be nice to you and toss it in the circular file when you walk out the door," said Engle.
