Parents voluntarily register with the Michigan Sheriff's Association any motor vehicle that will be operated by a driver under the age of 21.
An identification decal is issued by the Michigan Sheriff's Association and should be affixed to the front windshield of each registered vehicle.
If for any reason, the registered vehicle is stopped by the WCSO while a person under the age of 21 is driving, the officer will complete a notification card that provides the following information:
Time and location of stop
Drivers name and the number of passengers in vehicle
Reason for the stop
Whether any citations were issued
The notification will then be mailed directly to the parents in order to make them aware of potential problems as well as enable them to enforce parental rules that often co-exist with teenage driving privileges.
