Michigan’s Super Drunk Driving Law – Oakland County Attorneys
Michigan adopted a new “Super Drunk Driving” law in 2010 that added stiffer penalties to drunk drivers with blood alcohol content (BAC) of .17% or greater. Jail time is doubled, alcohol treatment is mandatory, driving is forbidden for 45 days, and installation of an in-car breathalyzer is required for a conviction of “super drunk driving.”
When you calculate the higher fines, driver responsibility fees, cost of the alcohol treatment and cost of the ignition interlock device, a person convicted in Michigan of Super Drunk driving is looking at a minimum of $8,000 to $10,000 in fees, fines and associated costs. Plus, your insurance premiums will skyrocket.
