Michigan

Michigan Statutes, 1953, Section 750.502c (last amended in 1984 by Public Act 110)

Michigan statutory law guarantees a blind person the legal right to be accompanied by a dog guide in harness in all public accommodations and educational institutions and on all public conveyances. The dog guide user can be required to produce identification, such as the I.D. card furnished by the dog guide school from which the dog was obtained.

Public accommodations include trains, buses, taxis, elevators, boats, and other common carriers. (Sect. 750.502c)

Violation: Any person who interferes with the above-enumerated rights is guilty of a misdemeanor and therefore punishable under Michigan law. (Sect. 750.502c)
