Dearborn Police encourage community to celebrate weddings safely and avoid instances of dangerous driving during celebrations

DEARBORN, MI — On Saturday, May 7, 2022, several residents notified the Dearborn Police Department of hazardous driving on a residential street in the area of Bingham and Warren.

Guests of a wedding taking place used the residential streets to drive dangerously, performing “burn outs” which create excessive noise, large clouds of smoke, and damage to the freshly paved streets, in addition to blocking local traffic.

Dearborn Police Chief Issa Shahin said, “Weddings are a time of celebration and festivity for new couples in our community, and beyond. However, we need to ensure that both guests and residents are protected by following the law and celebrating safely in order to prevent harm or tragedy. Reckless driving is illegal, and there is zero tolerance for this behavior in our community. There are more appropriate, and safer, ways to celebrate special occasions without endangering others.”

Detectives have identified several individuals involved in last Saturday’s incident, but they are asking for the public’s assistance to identify others involved. If you have any tips or information, please contact the Dearborn Police Department’s Detective Bureau at 313-943-3345.
