Dear Michigan Motorist:
There are nearly 7 million licensed drivers and 10 million registered vehicles in Michigan, which means our highways and roads are busy places. Ensuring motorists have the skills and knowledge to drive safely and responsibly is one of the best ways to remain safe on the road.
I am pleased to offer this latest edition of What Every Driver
Must Know. In it, you will find information about driver’s licenses, teens and driving, common traffic rules, signs and signals, what to do in emergencies, and much more. Whether you are a novice driver or have years of experience behind the wheel, this booklet can be a helpful guide.
Driving requires your full attention. Distractions such cell phones, texting, tuning the radio, and eating should be avoided when you are behind the wheel. Please make sure that you and your passengers remain safe. Obey all traffic laws, make sure everyone is buckled up or in an appropriate child safety seat, and never drink and drive. Michigan is a great state with many different opportunities for travel, recreation, and fun. Please drive safely.
Sincerely,

Ruth Johnson
Secretary of State

Comparing Oregon to Michigan

...William Smith ENG110 Nancy Alman The Comparison of Living in Oregon as to living in Michigan I have lived in many states in my life time but when it comes to comparing states, I would have to go with Oregon and Michigan. I found that the differences with these two states would have to be these three things. First would have to be the seasons, then the landscape, and finally it would be the people. Oregon tends to have only two seasons. They are summer and winter, or as the locals say wet and dry. In the summer time it gets into the 90’s, yet at night it gets down into the 50’s, which makes for some nice sleeping weather. The summers are a very dry time of year in Oregon. There are no big thunderstorms, no lightening, and very little, if no rain at all. This type of climate makes it hard to grow certain types of crops. Do to the lack of rain and the cool temperatures at night. The one crop that grows best is grass. The Willamette Valley, namely Linn and Benton counties, is the world’s largest producers of cool- weather grasses. Now we come to the winter season. Ah yes, better known as the rainy season, during which it rains for eight months. Because of the amount of rain that falls, grass and fescue, grows very well in this region. The only problem with winter, other than the rain, is that the sun does not come out very often. With the lack of sun shine and over cast skies comes a feeling of depression.......

Michigan Great Outdoors

...From swimming on sandy beaches, exploring lighthouses, and boating on the grandeur of Lake Michigan to kayaking on pristine rivers and quiet lakes. From experiencing world-class fishing to golf, Michigan’s Great Outdoors is pure Michigan. But that’s not the type of Michigan outdoors I like. Michigan has a lot to offer, but the outdoors of Michigan I like is the great car shows they have every year or the wonderful parks or even the exciting entertainment that goes on the down town Detroit. Cars, everybody either wants or needs one. But even if you don’t own one but have the love for cars you can go to an event I love attending called the Detroit Auto Show. It has everything from the first challenger to the new 2012 charger. My dad and I go every year to look at the hottest new cars and the great detailing of the old ones. We also go to get away from our girlfriends at times. It is a great outdoor activity that’s not really active but it will keep your attention. Another place to escape to in my type of great outdoors is to go to one of Michigan’s great parks, whether it’s the great Chene Park, or a simple dog park. Surprisingly my favorite park is the dog park. It’s the dog park because I’m killing two birds with one stone. By letting him run out all his energy and beat up other dogs instead of tearing up my house and what’s not to like about that. I think my dog lives to destroy everything I own. So far he ate the cords to my television, two floor lamps and some other......

Eugenics in Michigan

...During the twentieth century in Michigan, many believed that they could create a race of strong, healthy individuals by weeding out the ‘unfit.’ Those they considered to be idiots, imbeciles, feeble minded, insane, sexual perverts, moral degenerates, and epileptic persons were considered for sterilization. The thought was that by sterilizing the ‘unfit’ and the minorities, the worst genes would be eliminated, therefore only the best genes would reproduce. Focusing my research between the years 1869-1974, this paper will investigate the birth of eugenics and Michigan's adoption of the science, which resulted in the massive human rights violations of the states 3,786 residents. This paper will provide the answer to, why was eugenic sterilization such a commonly accepted science in Michigan during the early 1900’s until the sterilization law was repealed in the 1974? My research will show that eugenic sterilization, although heinous in nature, was justified by Michigan scientists and residents a like by claims of a more humane society and was thought to be the saving grace of mankind. Eugenics is a word derived from Greek meaning "well born" and was formulated by British scientist Francis Galton, cousin of Charles Darwin, after an 1869 study which stemmed from his cousins idea of better evolution. This work concluded that heredity was the sole factor in a persons make up—all things good and bad, anywhere from intellect to deformations. The definition of eugenics given by......

Detroit, Michigan

...Detroit, Michigan Natasha Parks January 24, 2013 POL/215 Dr. Richard Ansson Detroit Detroit is the biggest city in the Michigan State, of the United States of America. It boasts of a vast heritage of culture, transportation, finance and politics. The constitution of Detroit is an exceptionally compelling one. The constitution that governs Detroit is that of the larger Michigan state that was written in 1908. The Detroit constitution is a truly Democratic constitution, and is one for the people and by the people. In article I, the seat of the government is established at Lansing. It is a constitution that particularly protects the Detroit citizens and contains a lot of rights of the people (The Constitution of Michigan, 1908). There are a few examples of the rights which are the right to free speech, religious freedom, right to peaceful assembly, as well as the right to petition. One of the unique elements of this petition is that it gives everyone the right to bear arms for purposes of defending the State and him/herself. The rights are in the Article II. Another important article in this constitution is Article VII. It touches on the judicial system which is a vital arm of the government. The Judicial system in Detroit has supreme courts, circuit courts and probate courts with the Supreme Court being the highest (The constitution of Michigan, 1908). The constitution also states that elections for the judiciary must be non-partisan. A...

Michigan Manufacturing Corporation

...OPERATIONS STRATEGY Ist Case Submission On Michigan Manufacturing Corporation: The Pontiac Plant Submitted on 12th July 2013 Submitted by Group 13 Nikhil Majhi 1111045 Overview of Michigan Manufacturing Corporation: Michigan Manufacturing Corporation's Heavy Equipment Division (HED), headquartered in Pontiac is a large scale manufacturer of axles (both on-highway and off-highway applications) and brakes. The division has been underperforming and has been under the corporate radar regarding its long term alignment with the company’s long term business strategy. As of 1987, the division has 9 plants operating on-stream, and 1 (Fremont) under construction. The complexity of the products manufactured could be measured based on 3 categories: i. Product line (on-highway axles, off-highway axles, and brakes), ii. Product families, and iii. Product model. The Pontiac plant operates two product lines. It manufactures the low volume product families that include parts for new products and replacement parts for all old products to support its past customers. Based on the corporate strategy, it had been decided that as the demand for a new product being manufactured at Pontiac grows, the production shall be transferred to a new plant having requisite economies of scale and available capacity. As of 1987, the key factors that possibly have......

...We live in a society where integrity has become a decaying business ethic. In the scenario for this unit we find Dalman and Lei facing an integrity check, when they are reported by one of their managers that a government inspector stated he would be willing to approve a violation of a new law, based on new local health codes, by one of Sandwich Blitz locations, in exchange for catering services to his department’s holiday party. In this particular situation, the first demonstration of integrity has already been displayed by the location’s manager with the mere fact of him reporting the incident to Dalman and Lei. But the integrity test does not end there, in fact, that is just the beginning. In Sherman’s article Rethinking Integrity, one of the eight steps towards integrity is stated as “Doing the right thing: With the awareness of what’s right comes the obligation of right action. That means embodying our convictions—and accepting the consequences”. Based on Sherman’s Eight Steps towards Integrity, on his article Rethinking Integrity Leader to Leader, the manager at this location demonstrated one of the eight steps by doing the right thing. On reporting the issue instead of accepting the offer to bribe the inspector he is fulfilling his obligation of right action. J.C. Watts said “Character is doing the right thing when nobody's looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that's right is to get by, and the only thing that's wrong is to get caught”.......

...such success, Michigan is bound to have great players in the NFL, right? Correct. The University of Michigan has produced great players in the NFL. One of the most popular Michigan Players in today's NFL roster is Tom Brady. Brady was the quarter back for the Wolverines during his starting season, 1998 and 1999. Brady was all big ten in both his starting seasons and led michigan to a 20-5 winning record over those years. Now Tom Brady is the quarterback for the Patriots and is one of the most respected quarterbacks in the game today(Kinney, 2006). Another famous player for the U of M is Charles Woodson. Woodson played for the Wolverines in 1995-97. Charles Woodson was not only a Heisman winner, but the only Heisman winner to play primarily defense. Woodson is now a player for the Oakland Raiders(Kinney, 2006). The most famous coach has to be coach Fielding Yost. Yost arrived at the scene in 1901and was the athletic director and coach. During Yost's early years Michigan was a powerhouse. Yost's teams became the "point a minute" team. Yost led the Wolverines into the first bowl game in football history and defeated Stanford 49-0. Yost is widely considered the best coach in Michigan's history. He led the way and made winning a tradition at the U of M(Kinney, 2006). Memorable seasons Michigan has won 11 National titles and was the unclaimed winner 3 years. These are the seasons that we remember the most at the University of Michigan. The most recent time Michigan won......

Right to Work in Michigan

...Right to Work in Michigan In general, The Right to work policy was put into action to prevent labor unions from establishing a requirement of employees’ memberships including union dues, or fees constricted with employment. The Right to Work law regulates the agreements that are between employee and their employers. Right to work currently exists in 24 U.S states. Recently, in 2012, Michigan and Indiana have adopted the policy. The Opponents of the Right to Work are concerned that the average wage in RTW states are lower than the average wage in a non-RTW state. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2001, state the average worker in a RTW state would earn on average $5,000 less per year than those in other states. They do not state the cost of the wages that go to pay for the union you’re apart of in that state. According to economist Gordon Lafer, RTW laws do not boost the job growth in the states that adopt the laws, they also lower the wages and reduce benefits for union workers and non-union workers. By reducing employees’ income, a Right-to-Work law could have a significant negative effect on Michigan’s economy. Before Michigan adopted the Right to Work policy in 2012, Michigan’s cities were in an economic downward spiral. The Mackinac Center for Public Policy shows how Michigan before the RTW policy came into effect there were poorer performance in nearly every economic measure when compared to the standard RTW state. This includes poverty, unemployment, and......

College Application to the University of Michigan

...From the time I was able to realize what a university was, all I heard from my mother's side of the family was about the University of Michigan and the great heritage it has. Many a Saturday afternoon my grandfather would devote to me, by sitting me down in front of the television and reminiscing about the University of Michigan while halftime occurred during a Michigan Wolverines football game. Later, as I grew older and universities took on greater meaning, my mother and uncle, both alumni of the University of Michigan, took me to see their old stamping grounds. From first sight, the university looked frightening because of its size, but with such a large school comes diversity of people and of academic and non-academic events. In Springfield High School, non-academic clubs such as the Future Physicians and the Pylon, both of which I have belonged to for two years, give me an opportunity to see both the business world and the medical world. These two clubs have given me a greater sense of what these careers may be like. In Future Physicians, I participated in field trips to children's hospitals and also participated in two blood banks. Currently I hold a job at Maas Brothers. This lets me interact with people outside my own immediate environment. I meet different kinds of people, in diffrent moods, with different attitudes, and with different values. This job teaches me to be patient with people, to have responsibility, and to appreciate people for what they......

Flint, Michigan Water Crisis

...Flint, Michigan Water Crisis Currently in the city of Flint, Michigan they are experiencing a crisis—their entire water supply has been contaminated. Since April 2014, after the city changed its water source from the treated Detroit Water and Sewerage Department to water straight from the Flint River, this has exposed the public to great health risks. The heavy lead contamination within the river has been leached from aging pipes and into the water supply, making it dangerous for consumption and use. The NAACP, The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, has stated that they will give 30 days for the problem to be fixed. If the people of Flint speak out and engage in “civil disobedience” after no progress with the situation in the next 30 days, then it will result in the issue being fixed faster. Clean drinking water should not be a problem in the U.S. in this day of age, and it is a shame that it has come down to this in Michigan. In early 2014, Flint made the decision two years ago to switch the water supply to the local water source to save over five million dollars in a two-year period, due to a financial calamity. Unfortunately, things did not work out that way. Two years later, the entire water supply is going to cost over forty-five million dollars to repair and clean from lead contamination caused from aging pipes. A city that has already suffered from poverty and crime now doesn’t have access to safe drinking water. If the state invested $100......
