Record snow and cold may have departed, but
they've left in their wake one of Michigan's worst
pothole seasons ever. The Michigan Department of
Transportation (MDOT) is suggesting some ways
that motorists can avoid hitting potholes, and to
minimize damage if they can't miss them:

  • By driving extra cautiously and not tailgating,
    drivers have more time to see and react to any
    potholes they're approaching.

  • Properly inflated tires in good condition handle
    potholes better than worn, over-inflated or
    under-inflated tires.

  • Reporting potholes to MDOT's
   Report a Pothole webpage or
   The Pothole Hotline at 888-296-4546

(MDOT only repairs state "trunkline" roadways such
as I, M or US route

DRIVING TIPS
Have you ever wondered what to do with
unused or expired medication? Whatever you
do, don't flush them down the toilet. Instead,
dispose of those items at a Red Med Box.

Red Med Boxes are located at certain area
law enforcement buildings, including at the
Kalamazoo Township Police Department.
Red Med Box is an easy and secure way to
dispose of your unused or expired medication.

A personal protection order (PPO) is an order from the court
that restrains a named individual from certain actions. A petition
must be filed with the Trial Division of the Circuit Court. A
PPO is effective when signed by the judge and is enforceable
anywhere in the United States by any law enforcement agency
until the expiration date which is included in the order. A PPO
takes precedence over any existing custody or parenting time
order until the PPO expires, or is amended or terminated.

Violation of a PPO subjects a respondent to immediate arrest
and to the civil and criminal contempt powers of the court,
which may include up to 93 days incarceration and/or a fine up
to $500.00.
There are two ways in which a respondent may be brought
before the court for violating a PPO:

  • A law enforcement officer may make a warrantless
    arrest when probable cause is shown that the PPO has
    been violated.

  • The petitioner may file form 9CC-0407, Motion and
    Order to Show Cause for Violating PPO, and a show
    cause hearing will be scheduled.

For more information on obtaining a PPO, contact the PPO
Coordinator or visit the
Kalamazoo County Circuit Court
website.
