The following communication from the Department of State Police was received and read:

July 1, 2011

The 2010 Michigan Annual Drunk Driving Audit provides detailed information concerning traffic fatalities and injuries, as well as arrest activities that are part of ongoing efforts to reduce drunk driving in our state. Alcohol and/or drug related fatal crashes remain a significant traffic safety issue, with approximately 38 percent of the total fatal crashes involving alcohol and/or drugs.

The crash data displayed for each county are 2010 traffic crash statistics. The Michigan Department of State Police, Criminal Justice Information Center, maintains the state’s central repository for all crash data collected in Michigan. The crash data is housed in the Traffic Crash Reporting System and the Drunk Driving Audit is created using the data.

A reportable crash in Michigan is defined as: a motor vehicle that is in transport on the roadway that results in death, injury or property damage of $1,000 or more. In addition, a crash is reported for any snowmobile or off-road vehicle (ORV) with damage of $100 or more, whether on the roadway or off the roadway.

The Michigan Annual Drunk Driving Audit was compiled with information and data provided by the Michigan Department of State Police, the Michigan Department of State, and the Michigan Department of Transportation. We appreciate the teamwork, assistance and dedication of each of these departments in helping to make Michigan’s roads safe. We look forward to our continued partnership.

Questions regarding Section I (Traffic Crash and Arrest Data) should be directed to the Michigan Department of State Police, Criminal Justice Information Center, Traffic Crash Reporting Section at (517) 241-1699. Questions regarding Section II (Conviction Disposition Data) should be directed to the Michigan Department of State at (517) 322-1598.
