I’ve heard all sorts of theories when it comes to driving drunk.  Some people swear by the “two thumbs up” method, where you put your hands at 10 and 2 with you thumbs up, which helps you stay straight and I’ve heard about always having your window down and your radio off, to keep you alert and focused on the road.

Regardless what your theory is, it doesn’t work, that’s according to Michigan State Police, who will be cracking down on drunk drivers in the next coming weeks.  Police have launched the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign, which went into effect this past week.  Police research indicates that some young men in Michigan have identified themselves as “professional” drunk drivers.  The idea of being better behind the wheel under the influence is a dangerous mindset and far from the truth.  Drunk driving is bad, period.

Police in Genesee, Kalamazoo, Kent, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, Saginaw, St. Clair, Washtenaw and Wayne counties will all be performing seat belt check points and looking for signs of intoxication during all other traffic stops.
