MACKINAC ISLAND, Mich. - There are no motor vehicles allowed on Michigan's historic Mackinac Island.

That is, of course, unless you are a television station.

Every year for the Mackinac Policy Conference, Local 4's Tim Pamplin, the Nightcam, is tasked with bringing a WDIV satellite truck from Mackinac City to the Island.

This year, the Nightcam brought us along for the ride. Check it out below:
