A Michigan driver will spend 6 months in jail for the accidental death of a bicyclist how rode into her path, despite the fact that the death was not her fault. Ralph Martin, 64, was killed in Muskegon on November 26th, 2015 after Kali’s car hit him. Many argue that Michigan’s “zero tolerance” is unjust and is unscientific in its application to drugged driving.
Five years ago this fall, Michigan passed what is now known as the Super Drunk Law , one which imposes harsher than normal penalties for those whose blood alcohol levels reach or exceed .17 percent. So after 5 years of writing tickets for the worst drunk driving offenders, are we any safer than we were before the law was enacted? Maybe, maybe not.
