What Is The “Super Drunk” Law?

Michigan’s super drunk law is an addition to the Michigan Vehicle Code and redefines drunk driving to include drivers with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .17 or more grams of alcohol per 100 milliliters of blood, 210 liters of breath or 67 milliliters of urine. The consequences of violating the super drunk law are stiff, even if you are a first-time excessive BAC driver. If convicted for drunk driving, the following penalties may apply:

  • One-year mandatory alcohol treatment
  • One-year alcohol ignition interlock requirement
  • Jail time
  • Increased fines
  • Suspended driving privileges
