Recent changes in Michigan law have classics already cruising

You may have noticed classic rides already cruisin’ down Woodward Avenue. Did you know that recent changes in Michigan law allow classic car owners to cruise all of August -- without restriction?

Before S.B. 1146 was passed, a classic ride with historical plates couldn’t be used for routine transportation. It was restricted for use only at parades, car shows, and historic club activities.

Last July, the law was changed to allow car cruisers to drive without restriction in the state of Michigan -- all through the month of August. The month is considered an “exhibition”.

MDOT has also suspended resurfacing of more than 5 miles of Woodward Avenue between 14 Mile Road in Royal Oak and Oakridge Boulevard in Pleasant Ridge.

This suspension will last until Tuesday, August 20. All work should be completed on this section of the road by November.
