LANSING, Mich. — Since the "Super Drunk" laws went into effect more than 17 months ago, six drivers a day, on average, have been convicted under the statute, according to Michigan Secretary of State license suspension records.

Almost 3,000 "Super Drunks," drivers with blood-alcohol counts double the legal limit of 0.08, have been taken off the road with the help of stiffer penalties, double jail time for first offenders and up to a one-year suspension of driving privileges.
