The Michigan Sheriffs' Association and your local Sheriff are pleased to introduce the STOPPED (Sheriffs Telling Our Parents and Promoting Educated Drivers) program.
A parental notification system that was developed for the state by the Michigan Sheriffs' Association, the goal of STOPPED is to reduce the number of young drivers who are injured or killed in motor vehicle crashes each year. Annually over 3,000 drivers, ages 16 to 21 years old, die in the US as a result of motor vehicle crashes. MSA and Sheriff Paschke are pleased to offer parents this voluntary notification system that extends their watchful eyes and raises the level of awareness for drivers under the age of 21.
If for any reason, the registered vehicle is stopped by Sheriff's deputies 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
Driver's name and the number of passengers in vehicle
Reason for the stop
Whether any citations were issued
