REAL ID
Beginning October 1, 2020, the federal government will fully enforce the post-9/11 REAL ID Act, and standard state-issued driver's licenses and identification cards will no longer be accepted to board domestic flights within the United States.

Many people already have a REAL ID document, such as a valid US passport, a trusted traveler card, or an enhanced driver's license. A full list of acceptable REAL ID documents is available at TSA.gov.

A standard Michigan license may be made REAL ID-compliant by visiting a Secretary of State branch office and presenting the required documents. There's no additional fee if the change is done during your normal renewal time. Otherwise, a duplicate card fee will be charged.

Don't Crowd the Plow
The Ottawa County Road Commission is reminding drivers to exercise care around snow plows.
  • Never attempt to pass a moving snowplow on the right.
  • Snow plow drivers have limited visibility and cannot see directly behind their trucks. Avoid driving in snow plow blind spots.
  • Snow plows often throw up snow clouds, reducing visibility on all sides of the truck.
