Grand Ledge Area District Library loses funds as city adopts Michigan motor vehicle code on super drunk driving

 

An individual caught driving with a blood alcohol content of .17% or higher is subject to severe penalty according to Michigan’s Super Drunk Driving law. The recently updated law increases penalties for individuals caught driving ‘super drunk’. “There are a dozen or fewer ‘super drunk’ driving arrests per year in Grand Ledge,” said Kalmin Smith, mayor of Grand Ledge. Cases are handled at either the state level or at the city level. Come April, Grand Ledge is adopting the Michigan motor vehicle code, allowing incidents that occur within the city to be handled locally.
