The drunk driving lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. are big supporters of the “Choose Your Ride” campaign that is taking place over the Labor Day weekend throughout the State of Michigan. The campaign’s goal is to decrease the amount of drunk driving arrests over the holiday weekend in hopes to decrease the amount of drunk driving accidents and the serious injuries and fatalities these crashes cause.
The “Choose Your Ride” campaign includes billboards around metro Detroit that will feature the Novi Police Department's police patrol car with the rear half covered with what looks like a taxi cab.
