LUDINGTON — If you’re driving on U.S. 10 between Scottville and Ludington this weekend, you will notice an increased police presence. Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole said law enforcement officers from the sheriff’s office, Michigan State Police and Ludington Police Department are going to be concentrating on patrolling the 5-lane highway. He said officers will be paying extra attention to speed, seat belt use, aggressive driving and intoxicated drivers.

Since he became sheriff in 2013 Cole has made the safety on U.S. 10 a big focus of his department’s mission. The stretch is statistically one of the most dangerous in the state.
