Police Enforcement Up For Labor Day

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - For those traveling during Labor Day weekend, Michigan State Police would like to remind motorists to make safety a priority.

Michigan State Police will be enorcing their Operation C.A.R.E. (Combined Accident Reduction Effort) and Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over programs. For those planning to celebrate, remember do not drink and drive. Police will be enforcing a zero-tolerance rule to drivers operating under the influence of both alcohol and drugs.

Police will also be looking for seat belt safety, child restraint violations and anyone driving recklessly. In 2012 eight traffic crashes during Labor Day weekend caused eight deaths in the Lansing area. Of the people who died, four were not wearing seat belts. 

AAA expects around 1.2 million Michigan residents to hit the road for the holiday weekend. They say it's the busiest Labor Day travel weekend in the last five years.
