Starting March 1, 2009, Michigan will launch a 31 day speeding ticket
frenzy. The state estimates that $9 million dollars will be generated in
speeding tickets, with an additional $3.5 million in revenue for failure
to wear a seatbelt.. $1 million will go to pay state troopers overtime.
There will be 47 state troopers on duty at all times patrolling the main
intersections and highways with the highest rates of speeding.
They are the following:
I-75, especially from the Ohio line north to Woodhaven, and again from
Auburn Hills to Flint
I-96 east and west in its entirety
I-275 north and south
I-675 north and south
I-94 east and west from Battle Creek to Jackson
I-696 east and west in its entirety
I-196 east and west
US-131 north and south
I-69 east and west from Lansing to Flint and again from Flint eastward to
I-69 north and south from I-94 to Lansing
M-14 east and west from I-94 to I-275
M-39 from I-94 to I-96
M-59, especially from Pontiac to Utica, and from Utica east
US-10 from Midland to Bay City
US-23 from I-96 to Flint
US-27 from Lansing to Mt.. Pleasant
5 mph above the limit can justify a ticket and every state trooper is
supposed to pull a car over and write a ticket every 10 to 20 minutes.
They have issued 30 brand new unmarked Dodge Charger Police cruisers and
canceled all vacation time. In addition, they are bringing in all of their
part timers on full time for the month. This nonsense will conclude on
Driving Ticket fine increase in MI:
Starting on January 15th, the price of a ticket for violation of MI Law
39:3-29 (failure to show your driver's license, registration, or proof of
insurance card at the time you are stopped) went from $44.00 to $173.00.
Please make sure your vehicles have the proper documents in them. If you
jump in the car to run to the store and forget your wallet with your
license in it and you are stopped.... Oh well... you just spent $173. And
the fine for not having all three documents is $519!!!
