Michigan's Super Drunk Law

As of 2010, drivers with a BAC of 0.17 or more grams of alcohol per 100 milliliters of blood, per 210 liters of breath or per 67 milliliters of urine are now charged with a more serious crime. 

If convicted under this law, you'll face license suspension, exorbitant fines, and having to undergo one year of alcohol rehabilitation.
