“One of the places that we get the most complaints from people that live in this area or travel back and forth to work is the Southfield Freeway. A lot of people realize that the freeway is 55, but this is a very tough area to do any type of enforcement, due to the fact that the shoulders are very small and very narrow,” Michigan State Police Lt. Mike Shaw.READ MORE: Judge Says Michigan Gov. Whitmer Won't Have To Testify In Abortion Lawsuit
Shaw explained that because the shoulders are narrow, it makes it harder to safely pull people over.
Troopers will be out on Southfield all day today, and Shaw says that they won’t be cutting to many breaks today, so if someone is pulled over, they’re probably going to get a ticket.
