What Is The Super Drunk Law?

Michigan’s super drunk law is a recent addition to the Michigan Vehicle Code, which redefines drunk driving to include drivers with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.17 or more grams of alcohol per:

  • 100 milliliters of blood, OR
  • 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
