A person may be prosecuted for operating while intoxicated in a place "generally accessible to motor vehicles" if the place is one that is usually capable of being reached by self-propelled vehicles.
In People v Rea, 500 Mich 422 (2017), the Michigan Supreme Court held that Rea's private driveway was a place generally accessible to motor vehicles.
Additionally, MCL 257.625(1) prohibits operating a vehicle while intoxicated: (1) upon a highway (2) in a place open to the general public, or (3) in a place generally accessible to motor vehicles (as in the case cited above).
