LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Gov. Rick Snyder has signed legislation allowing communities to enforce local ordinances targeting drivers considered "super drunk."
Snyder says Wednesday that the legislation gives "communities the tools to be effective partners in protecting Michigan families."
The state's tougher "super drunk" law took effect in 2010 and Snyder's office says police couldn't write such tickets under local ordinances.
Michigan's legal limit is a blood alcohol level of 0.08 percent. The "super drunk" designation is 0.17 percent or more.
