The Carjacking Law
In Michigan, Detroit, and Wayne, Oakland and Macomb County, it is illegal to take a motor vehicle in the possession of another. When force is used to take the car then the conduct is known as car jacking. Under the carjacking law, the crime has been committed so long as force is used to deprive another of a car, and it does not matter if the person attacked was the owner or driver of the vehicle. Car jacking is often confused with the crime of robbery. Essentially, carjacking is a robbery but with the added intent to take another’s motor vehicle for some period of time..
