LANSING (WTVB) - The Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning says this weekend kicks off the summer travel season and that’s why their plan is to keep beefed up patrols on the state’s roadways until June first. That’s nearly a week after the holiday weekend ends. Anne Readett says 15 died last year during the three day holiday period. She says if drivers want to avoid officers they need to stay sober, stay alert, observe the speed limit and avoid distractions. All southwestern and southeastern Michigan Counties will have the federally funded patrols on the roads this weekend.
