ALPENA ― Lead-foot drivers could see lights in their rear view mirror as police crack down on speeding during December and January, the Michigan State Police announced Tuesday.

MSP troopers will participate in an Office of Highway Safety Planning enforcement period meant to stem a rise in speeding and speed-related crashes that killed more than 200 people on Michigan roads in 2020, an 8% increase over the previous year.

Drivers wishing to avoid a speeding ticket ― or a crash ― should exercise extra caution in the next two months, when police will use extra vigilance as they watch for speeding drivers.
