Gov. Snyder Signs Laws To Go After Drugged Driving


Recommended Posts

LANSING – Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has signed laws to target drivers under the influence of drugs after two young men were killed in a head-on collision by a repeat drugged driver.

The legislation signed Tuesday allows police to conduct a preliminary roadside analysis for controlled and other intoxicating substances. A conditional bond is to be


placed on motorists arrested for drugged driving and the information entered into a law enforcement database.


Legislators sponsored the bills after the July 2013 deaths of Russell Ward and Koby Raymo in St. Clair County.


A woman who crossed the center line and struck their vehicle had been pulled over six times in five years for drugged driving, but officers didn't know she had multiple


offenses because they weren't listed in the Law Enforcement Information Network.
