LANSING, Mich. — Michigan State Police troopers will be spending the July Fourth holiday weekend watching for drivers who are “unbelted, driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs and exhibiting other dangerous driving behaviors,” says MSP Director Col. Kriste Kibbey Etue. The effort is part of Operation C.A.R.E., the international traffic safety initiative to cut down traffic injuries and deaths.

“Troopers will take a zero-tolerance approach,” said Col. Etue in an MSP release. “Additionally, the summer-long traffic safety campaign ‘Michigan Summer of Safety’ is a reminder to all of us to take safety along for the ride by driving and boating sober, wearing helmets and reflective gear when biking and riding motorcycles and always wearing a seat belt.”
