Defective equipment leads to citations
Defective equipment led to a pair of drivers receiving tickets for driving with suspended licenses.
Friday evening, November 14, officers were on routine patrol on Townline Road, near Dixie Highway, when they observed a northbound vehicle on Dixie being operating with a burned-out headlight.
Officers stopped the vehicle and the driver, a 59-year-old Bay City man, near the Mount Olive Cemetery.
A Secretary of State check of his license determined he was driving with a suspended license. He was also unable to provide proof of insurance.
He was ticketed for having a suspended license, no proof of insurance and defective equipment. The vehicle was released to a licensed driver, who was called to the scene.
On Friday night, November 14, officers were near the intersection of Jefferson and Main streets when they observed a vehicle with no taillights. They followed the car eastbound on Jefferson Street and stopped the vehicle on Weiss Street, near List Street.
Further investigation determined the driver, a 37-year-old Saginaw man, was driving on a suspended license, his license plate had expired and he had no proof of insurance. He was also wanted by the Milford Police Department for a misdemeanor warrant. The Milford police did not want to pick him up.
The driver was cited for driving with a suspended license, expired plate and no insurance. The vehicle was released to his passenger, a 32-year-old Clio woman, who had a valid driver’s license.
