The increased patrols started Monday.
“Any kind of impaired driving is illegal, said Sgt. Mike VandenBosch. “A zero tolerance approach will be taken for a motorist that is stopped and is impaired by alcohol, marijuana, prescription medication or other illegal drugs.”
“We would remind motorists that if you feel different, you drive different and to get a ride instead of getting behind the wheel,” the sergeant said.
Ottawa County is in partnership with the Office of Highway Safety and Planning for these increased patrols. The Sheriff’s Office joins law enforcement agencies across the State of Michigan for this impaired driving awareness, VandenBosch said.
